There are no fee areas in Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Camping does not require reservations and permits are not required for backcountry travel or camping.

However, all parties venturing into the backcountry are asked to complete this voluntary backcountry registration form, which is used for informational purposes only. It can assist rangers with a rescue in the event that a third party calls the park to report a party overdue. Please note: The National Park Service does not track your party's progress through the park. We recommend that you leave a copy of your itinerary with a friend or relative for safety purposes.

Please follow park rules and regulations and acquire the appropriate state licenses for hunting and fishing.
