Location

Lake Clark National Park & Preserve is located southwest of Anchorage, Alaska, extending from the west coast of Cook Inlet to the tundra of southwest Alaska. Lake Clark is not on the road system. Access to the Lake Clark region is by small aircraft and many air taxi services provide transportation to the park. Float planes may land on the many lakes throughout the area. Wheeled planes land on open beaches, gravel bars, or private airstrips in or near the park. A one to two-hour flight from Anchorage, Kenai or Homer will provide access to most points within the park and preserve.
