Chinitna Bay, in the far southeastern part of the park, is a popular bear-viewing spot.

Lake Clark National Park and Preserve boasts 123 miles of coast along Cook Inlet between Chinitna and Tuxedni bays. Located west of the Kenai Peninsula, the Lake Clark coast is famous for spectacular scenery, birds rookeries, and bear viewing in the lush salt marshes at Chinitna Bay and Silver Salmon Creek.

Two islands near Tuxedni Bay, Chisik and Duck, are managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as part of the the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge.
