Leave No Trace
For their own safety and enjoyment, and for the continued health of the Alagnak environment, campers are encouraged to practice the Leave No Trace Principles of outdoor ethics.

Bear Awareness
The Alagnak is bear country! In order to minimize human-bear conflicts, it is critical that campers store food, trash, and any odorous items in bear-resistant containers (BRCs, or "bear barrels"). A limited supply of BRCs are available for temporary use, free-of-charge at the King Salmon Visitor Center. Hanging food is not encouraged as trees of appropriate height will not be available in what is essentially treeless tundra.
