Yakutat District Office
The Yakutat District is located in the southern portion of the park, along the coastline. The visitor center in Yakutat is no longer open and we now operate very limited visitor services out of the Wrangell-St. Elias hangar in the Yakutat Airport. Please call for directions and hours of operation.
Located at the base of the St. Elias Mountains, the city of Yakutat (pop. 633) is a Tlingit settlement on the Gulf of Alaska. Outdoor guide services and commercial fishing are the primary sources of income for most residents, though logging and government also play important roles in the local economy. Yakutat is approximately 220 air miles northwest of Juneau, 218 air miles southeast of Cordova and 342 air miles southeast of Anchorage.
