Learn About the Park

Unbound by dams or artificial channels, Alagnak River flows from headwaters in the Aleutian Range across the Alaska Peninsula to Bristol Bay. Along the way, the river nourishes a rich assortment of plants, animals, and an evolving human history.

Human History and Culture: 7,000 to 9,000 years ago, people settled along the river and they haven’t left.
Nature: Alagnak supports a diverse array of plants and animals across a landscape where it is free to meander.
Management: Alagnak Wild River is managed by National Park Service staff to preserve unimpaired its natural and cultural resources and values for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.
News: Stay connected to Alagnak for the latest updates.
Bookstore: Alaska Geographic offers an extensive collection of titles on Katmai’s natural and cultural heritage.
