Visiting Lake Clark & Katmai National Parks

Lake Clark National Park

One of the most remote national parks in the U.S., Lake Clark abounds with breathtaking mountains, turquoise lakes, wildlife, and opportunities for outdoor activity.

With more than 4 million acres to explore, the list of things to do in Lake Clark is seems endless. You can backpack or day hike, camp or stay in a B&B. You can fly fish, hunt, paddle, raft, watch wildlife and flightsee. 

Port Alsworth is headquarters to both Lake Clark National Park and Preserve, and Lake and Peninsula Airlines. Because we’re based here, we know exactly what the area has to offer and can help you plan a trip perfect for your interests, timing and skills.

Katmai National Park

A visit to the rugged Katmai National Park and Preserve is one of the most rewarding national park experiences in the world. The fourth largest national park in the U.S., Katmai was established to preserve the volcanic landscape of the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. But the park is perhaps most known as the home of one of the largest populations of grizzly bears on Earth, and one of the best places to watch these incredible creatures, as they fish for salmon in the Brooks River.

At this time, Lake & Peninsula Airlines offers connecting flights to Katmai National Park with our partner organization Rainbow River Aviation. These flights connect to Katmai through both our Port Alsworth and Iliamna locations. Email us and ask about our seat fares to either village and these connecting flights.
