Katmai National Park and Preserve spans nearly five million acres of remote spectacular country. Glaciated volcanoes and desolate volcanic rubble rise above jagged cliffs and dense alder thickets. The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes stands as a reminder of the incredibly powerful volcanic eruption that occurred in 1912.
A National Park & Preserve since 1980, today Katmai is still famous for volcanoes, but also for brown bears, pristine waterways with abundant fish, remote wilderness, and a rugged coastline. The park and preserve host an incredible density of brown bears (over 2000 bears were estimated in the park and preserve in a recent survey). Many of the bears are lured in by the high number of fish during the salmon runs of summer.
Sport-fishing in the park is also world renown, as many people are attracted to the trophy rainbow trout swimming in the many rivers and streams. Anglers also come to fish for sockeye (red) salmon, silver (coho) salmon, Dolly Varden, and lake trout.
Much of the park is rarely visited and opportunities for incredible wilderness experiences abound. Other areas, such as Brooks Camp, are more easily accessed and have various facilities. For more information, visit the National Park Service website.
