Daily Park Activities
During the winter, visitor services are limited. Please email KLGO_information@nps.gov or call 907-983-9200 to learn about park offerings on the day of your visit.
Snowshoeing and Skiing
Hardy souls may find abundant natural beauty all to themselves. Depending on snow levels, both snowshoes and cross-country skiing are peaceful and rewarding ways to explore. We encourage you to travel with a partner or a group for safety. Be prepared for all conditions and contact the park with any questions you have about winter recreation.
