Aniakchak is truly a wild and unpredictable place. For the well-prepared visitor, however, these very characteristics can make for the adventure of a lifetime.
Visitors are encouraged to (and should expect to) invest a significant amount of time and energy in planning their visit. For more information, contact Aniakchak National Monument & Preserve headquarters in King Salmon, AK. The King Salmon Visitor Center, in partnership with the Alaska Geographic Association, offers maps, books, and other useful trip planning literature.
