Welcome to Katmai Country
Katmai National Monument was established in 1918 to protect the volcanically devastated region surrounding Mount Katmai and the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes. Today, Katmai National Park and Preserve remains an active volcanic landscape, but it also protects 9,000 years of human history as well as important habitat for salmon and the thousands of brown bears that feed on them.

The only bridge in Katmai spans the Brooks River. All other rivers in the park must be crossed on foot or by boat. Be careful as heavy rains or melting snow can quickly cause the rivers to become uncrossable.
