The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world. The Commercial Visitor Service Providers fill a vital role in helping the National Park Service carry out its mission.

The businesses listed in this Directory are authorized to offer certain specific goods and services to park visitors, which are not provided by National Park Service personnel. By welcoming the private sector as a partner in park operations, the National Park Service broadens the economic base of the region in general and the communities surrounding the parks in particular.
Commercial Use Authorizations (CUA) are a simple means to provide suitable commercial services to park area visitors in limited circumstances. Permits are limited to no more than 2 years at a time.

The list below gives services and contact information for authorized CUA Holders in each of the Alaska park units.
