Kenai Fjords National Park
The Park is open year-round. The primary months to visit are June, July, and August. There are reduced services in the area during the "shoulder" months of May and September.

The road to the Exit Glacier Area is not plowed during the winter months, and is closed to cars and trucks once snow begins falling on it.

The park's coastal backcountry is also inaccessible late fall through early spring due to rough seas.
