Eielson Air Force Base Eielson is a military facility that has a population of nearly 9,000, including active duty, dependents, and civilians. It is important that the base have recreational facilities that are readily accessible due to the bases isolation from off-base facilities. Eielson has provided recreational opportunities in the form of fishing at several base lakes, including Mullins Pit. To enhance the Mullins Pit facility, Eielson is proposing to construct a boat ramp on the lakes north end that will provide enhanced access to a popular on-base fishing area. Currently, fishing access is limited to a small portion of the shoreline. One other alternative was identified for this project that would result in the construction of two 50-foot-long fishing piers that would be extended into the lake to provide fishing access to portions of the lake. The piers would be constructed on wooden pilings that would be driven into the lake bottom.
