Pets

Leashed pets are permitted in the park and preserve. However, we strongly encourage you to leave your pets at home, for your safety, their safety, and the health of the ecosystem. Dogs running loose can bring enraged bears or moose back to their owners. They can also harrass or kill local wildlife, and leave waste that can pollute streams and introduce diseases. If you must bring your pet, remember that it must be leashed at ALL times, and that you must properly dispose of its waste.

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.
