Where To Eat
If you are not staying overnight at a lodge, you must provide all your own meals during your visit to the park. You may be able to make advanced arrangements for a meal with a lodge in the area you plan to visit.
There is a variety of lodging options within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve from rustic camping, to bed and breakfasts, to all inclusive lodges offering guided excursions. However, unlike many larger parks, Lake Clark does not have a concessionaire who runs dining and lodging facilities on park property. All dining and lodging options are located on private property and owned and operated by private sector businesses. Contact each lodge directly to determine pricing and availability.
Lodges, Bed & Breakfasts, Cabins
The following lodging opportunities are all independent businesses operating on private land within the park boundary. Contact each lodge directly to determine pricing and availability. This list is not an endorsment by the National Park Service but is intended to provide information.
With a few exceptions, visitors may travel and camp where they like in this trail free environment. For more information please visit our camping and backpacking page.
