Fees & Reservations
Unlike most National Parks, there are NO entrance stations or required fees to enter Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve.
If you plan on enjoying the park through any commercial outfitters, guides, services, or lodging facilities, you should arrange any reservations directly through them.
Currently, there are 14 public-use cabins located within Wrangell-St. Elias. All cabins are in remote locations and require hikers/campers to make appropriate plans. Most cabins are available on a first-come, first-served basis. However, there are currently 5 cabins that require a reservation. Go to our Public-Use Cabin page to learn more about these cabins and to make a reservation.

it “Chechitno” and “Chetchitno”. In 1885, explorer Henry T. Allen used
the term “Chittyna”.
