Things To Know Before You Come

For a safe and successful Alagnak adventure, all visitors must at least be prepared for extreme weather and the likelihood of encounters with bears.

With the exception of lodging or guiding services, interaction with most commercial services ends once you are dropped off by air taxi or boat on the Alagnak.

Within the boundaries of Alagnak Wild River are many private and Alaska Native corporation lands. Please respect private property during your visit. More information on public/private boundaries along the Alagnak River can be found here.

Did You Know?

A DeHavilland Beaver float plane lands on the Alagnak Wild River.

In June 1927 pilot Russell Merrill of Anchorage Air Transport flew a Travel Air to Lockanok cannery at the mouth of the Alagnak Wild River. This first airplane landing in the Bristol Bay region would effectively lead to a new era of air transport for this formerly inaccessible part of Alaska.
