Permits are not required for public access to or overnight stays within the Alagnak Wild River corridor. Please be aware, however, that the shores of the Alagnak contain numerous parcels of privately owned land. Access to private lands is prohibited without prior consent of the landowner.
Visitors should leave itinerary information with a friend or family member. Be sure to include float plan details, the name of the trip leader, the air taxi operator's name and contact information, type and color of equipment/clothing used, and anticipated date of return. The NPS will not initiate a search for an individual or group unless they are reported overdue. Alagnak users are also encouraged to submit the same information in a "Backcountry Planner," available free of charge at the King Salmon Visitor Center.
Special Use Permits
Following the recent court decision, the National Park Service will not be implementing or enforcing the commercial filming portions of 43 CFR Part 5 until further notice, including accepting applications, issuing permits, enforcing the terms and conditions of permits, issuing citations related to permits, or collecting cost recovery and location fees for commercial filming activities.
As regulations regarding commercial filming permits are being reassessed, those interested in commercial filming activities on land managed by the National Park Service are encouraged to contact the park directly for more information about filming in the park and to discuss how to minimize potential impacts to visitors and sensitive park resources.
