Most visitors come to Katmai National Park and Preserve for bear viewing or sport fishing, but many other outdoor activities are available as well. In the Brooks Camp vicinity, you can hike Dumpling Mountain, backpack in the Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, or canoe or kayak the Savonoski Loop. With over 4 million acres of wilderness, the rest of the park offers backcountry adventures limited only by your imagination and wilderness skills.

Alutiiq residents in the Katmai area maintain their traditional fall harvest of "red fish" (sockeye salmon in spawning colors). The low fat content fish dries easily for storage.
