WELCOME to Lake Clark!

Lake Clark National Park and Preserve was created to protect scenic beauty (volcanoes, glaciers, wild rivers and waterfalls), populations of fish and wildlife, watersheds essential for red salmon, and the traditional lifestyle of local residents.

Lake Clark's spectacular scenery provides a true wilderness experience for those who visit.

The Telaquana Trail

The Telaquana Trail is an historic route, not a trail in the modern sense. The route, which runs from Telaquana Lake to the outlet of the Kijik River into Lake Clark, is a traditional Dena'ina Athabascan corridor from Stony River/Mulchatna country to the Lake Clark area.

Lake Clark's Volcanoes

Iliamna and Redoubt are two active volcanoes in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Iliamna has not erupted in historic time, but is frequently seen steaming from its summit fumaroles. Redoubt's most recent eruption included 23 explosive events between December 1989 and April 1990. Both volcanoes are continuously monitored by the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

Access to the Lake Clark region is by small aircraft and many air taxi services provide transportation to the park. Float planes may land on the many lakes throughout the area. Wheeled planes land on open beaches, gravel bars, or private airstrips in or near the park. A one to two-hour flight from Anchorage, Kenai or Homer will provide access to most points within the park and preserve.
