“the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes”
A landscape is alive underneath our feet, filled with creatures that remind us what it is to be wild. Katmai was established in 1918 to protect the volcanically devastated region surrounding Novarupta and the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Today, Katmai National Park and Preserve also protects 9,000 years of human history and important habitat for salmon and thousands of brown bears.
This amazing park is home to active volcanoes, 2,000 years of human history, rivers, bays, coves, rivers, wilderness, and glaciers. You'll also find bear viewing, hiking, fishing, kayaking, boating, camping, hunting, and trapping.
The most-visited parts of Katmai National Park and Preserve are Brooks Camp, Amilak Bay, and Fure’s Cabin.
This is one of our favorite Alaska national parks!
