The Lake Clark area is special for its diversity of flowers, plants, trees, and lichen in a relatively small area. Four of the five biotic communities found in Alaska - coastal, lakes/rivers/wetlands, tundra, and forest - exist in the park.

An illustrated list of common plants can be found here.

As recently as the 1960s, dog team travel was still the best way to get around Lake Clark country in the winter. Snowmobiles are more common now, but many people still keep sled dogs.
