Permits are not required for public access to or overnight stays within the Alagnak Wild River corridor. Please be aware, however, that the shores of the Alagnak contain numerous parcels of privately owned land. Access to private lands is prohibited without prior consent of the landowner.
Visitors should leave itinerary information with a friend or family member. Be sure to include float plan details, the name of the trip leader, the air taxi operator's name and contact information, type and color of equipment/clothing used, and anticipated date of return. The NPS will not initiate a search for an individual or group unless they are reported overdue. Alagnak users are also encouraged to submit the same information in a "Backcountry Planner," available free of charge at the King Salmon Visitor Center.
