Like many of the national parks in Alaska, Lake Clark National Park and Preserve also isn’t accessible via road, meaning that visitors will have to schedule an air taxi to fly into the area.

Despite this, it’s a breath-taking and very rewarding region to travel to, featuring everything from three mountain ranges and a coastline with rainforests, to volcanoes, glaciers, plateaus, alpine tundra, and icy lakes.

Things to Do in Lake Clark National Park & Preserve

Bear Viewing

Since this region is so famous for its bounty of bears, bear viewing is a popular park activity. Three of the most popular bear viewing locations include Silver Salmon Creek, Chinitna Bay, and Crescent Lake.

Guests can also choose to observe the bears with an experienced ranger through a guided trip. Either way, bear safety practices should be followed at all times.


Over 187 species of birds exist in this national park, making it a birdwatcher’s paradise!

Popular feeding and nesting grounds within the region include the foothill and lakes area to the west of the Chigmit Range, as well as the Chulitna Flats next to Lake Clark.

Birdwatchers can expect to see species such as raptors, falcons, owls, waterfowl, ptarmigan, songbirds, and grouse.

Visit Richard Proenneke's Cabin

The cabin is located on Upper Twin Lake, offering a slice of Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. This hand built cabin once served as the home to Richard L. Proenneke, one of Alaska's most important wilderness icons.

Visitors will love admiring his unique wilderness craftsmanship, as well as his former way of life in such a remote, yet beautiful, location.

The easiest way to access the cabin is via sea plane, as the land surrounding it doesn’t offer a suitable landing space. Alternatively, visitors may be able to access it through backpacking from other locations in the park.


Once in the park, guests have many day hiking opportunities, whether it’s via the one maintained trail system within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, or through backcountry hiking.

The Tanalian Trails from Port Alsworth (in the center of the park) offer a great way to explore the park, plus, visitors can turn back at any time they wish to!

There are two moderate day hikes which can be done via this trail, including to Tanalian Falls and Kontrashibuna Lake, or the Beaver Pond Trail. For more experienced hikers unafraid of a challenge, the journey to Tanalian Mountain is both demanding, but extremely rewarding. It provides spectacular panoramic views of Lake Clark and the neighboring mountains!


Because it is largely a trail-free region (and one certainly without roads), visitors are largely free to camp wherever they’d like within the park.

There’s also privately-run campgrounds in Port Alsworth and Lake Clark, however, and they’re operated by Tulchina Adventures. Offering tent sites, fire-pits, firewood and outhouses, as well as roofed tent platforms, the company likens the experience to “glamping” (glamorous camping).

Prices start at $30 per night for 2 people.
