The National Park Service maintains no campgrounds in Aniakchak National Monument & Preserve; all camping is primitive.
Permits are not required for public access to or overnight stays within Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve. However, campers are encouraged to make known their itinerary information.
Leave No Trace
For their own safety and enjoyment, and for the continued health of the Aniakchak environment, campers are encouraged to practice the Leave No Trace Principles of outdoor ethics.
Aniakchak is bear country! In order to minimize human-bear conflicts, it is critical that campers store food, trash, and any odorous items in bear-resistant containers (BRCs, or "bear barrels"). A limited supply of BRCs are available for temporary use, free of charge at the King Salmon Visitor Center. Hanging food is not encouraged as trees of appropriate height will not be available in what is essentially treeless tundra.
