Your visit to Lake Clark National Park and Preserve might include a quiet moment watching coastal Alaskan brown bears graze on the protein rich sedges at Silver Salmon Creek or Chinitna Bay. It could include a visit to Dick Proenneke's historic cabin on upper Twin Lake. Or maybe your visit will be a rigorous backpacking trip with friends over tundra slopes and past turquoise lakes.

Whatever your adventure includes the first step in planning a trip to the park is to choose your experience. Whether you have a day or a week there are a variety of on-line resources to help you plan your visit.
