Visitor Centers

Park Headquarters Visitor Center

Stop by any of the park's visitor centers to plan your visit and learn about Wrangell-St. Elias.


Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve has various visitor contact points. Each of these facilities is staffed by professional interpretive park rangers who can assist you with a variety of services.

The park rangers' first-hand knowledge of the park is a great asset to you as you plan activities and learn about the special, unique features of the area.

At most of the visitor centers and ranger stations, there are opportunities to get information, to take a hike, view the film, purchase books and souvenirs, use restrooms, obtain permits, and check out Bear Resistant Food Containers (BRFCs). The exception is the McCarthy Road Information Station: this station is generally not staffed and has posted information only.
