There is no required entrance fee to access Noatak National Preserve.

If you are organizing a trip for yourself, the National Park Service does not require reservations for any type of travel or backcountry camping within the park. If you are part of an organized recreation group, contact the chief ranger for permit requirements and stipulations. Call us at 907.442.3890.

Commercial businesses that provide guides and transportation should be contacted well in advance to plan travel logistics. Keep in mind that travel by plane is the primary way to access the park, but flights are expensive. The cost to get to 2-3 people to a backcountry site one hour from Kotzebue will be about $2600 round trip. Traveling on the small commercial flights to a village will be about $500 round trip per person.
