Backcountry Trip Planner

A trip planner will be available online soon. In the meantime, trip planners can be filled out in person at the King Salmon and Brooks Camp visitor centers or emailed to KATM-Distpatch@nps.gov.

Please note that park rangers will not track your trip. Rather, the information in the trip planners will be used in the event that assistance is needed. Be sure to inform someone you trust of your plans including your expected return date.
