Bettles Field is located near the village of Evansville. It is a common jumping off spot for the park. Several air taxi operators fly into all areas of the park from here. The park field office is also located in Bettles Field. There is also a log cabin visitor contact station where visitors attend back country orientations, receive park condition updates, attend ranger programs, get their park passport stamped, check out bear resistant food containers and become a Guardian of the Gates.
