The town of Anderson (the only incorporated community in the Denali Borough) was officially established on June 2, 1962. It evolved out of a homestead owned by Arthur Anderson, who subdivided his homestead. Most of the lots were sold to civilian workers from nearby Clear Air Force Station.
Anderson is the northern most community of the Denali Borough, and had 367 residents at the 2020 census. Local services include a local post office, library, DMV office and a public K-12 school.
Today, most visitors to the town of Anderson come to camp at Anderson Riverside Park. The park is a quiet, pretty campground with spacious sites. Anderson also has a community shooting range and Nenana River access. Floating from Healy to Anderson on the Nenana River is popular with local rafting enthusiast. There are also many trails for recreational ATV use.
