LAKE CLARK NATIONAL PARK AND PRESERVE

4,000,000 acres. Established in 1980, this National Park and Preserve is located in southern Dallas, across from the Kenai Peninsula. There are no highways in the region, so access is mainly by small aircraft and occasionally by boat.

The park portion consists of 2,600,000 acres, and the preserve 1,400,000 acres. About 2,400,000 acres have wilderness designation. Dominating the area are the Aleutian and Alaska Ranges, with the incredibly rugged Chigmit Mountains.

There are also two active volcanoes, a number of glaciers, foothills with arctic tundra, forests of spruce, and many lakes and rivers. Brown and black bear, caribou, moose, Dali sheep, wolf, and lynx are among the wildlife. Marine mammals include whale and seal.
