Your Gateway Lake Clark National Park And Preserve

Lake Clark National Park preserves a vast and pristine wilderness. Alaska boasts eight national parks, including; Denali, Gates of the Arctic, Glacier Bay, Katmai, Kenai Fjords, Kobuk Valley, Lake Clark, and Wrangell-St. Elias. Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is unique for its diverse ecosystems, encompassing volcanic landscapes, pristine lakes, towering mountains, and coastal plains, providing habitat for a wide array of wildlife such as brown bears, salmon, and migratory birds.

Lake Clark lies to the north of Katmai National Park, approximately 65 air miles northwest of Homer and 120 air miles southwest of Anchorage. Situated off Alaska’s road system, travel to Lake Clark is predominantly by small aircraft. 

This expansive park safeguards the ancestral homelands of the Dena’ina people, hosts an unspoiled ecosystem at the source of the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery, and serves as a haven for true wilderness.


Redoubt Bay Lodge Location

Redoubt Bay Lodge is located on the western side of Cook Inlet, approximately 70 miles southwest of Anchorage. The property is just east of the national park in what’s known as the Redoubt Bay Critical Habitat Area. It’s known for being the nesting grounds of the Tule white-fronted goose. Our home lake, Otter Lake, is part of the Big River Lakes system, where Big River originates before flowing into Cook Inlet. Want to find us easily?

Visitors venturing into the Redoubt Bay Critical Habitat Area next to Lake Clark National Park, and most places throughout Alaska, may encounter diverse weather scenarios, from sunshine and warmth to steady rainfall. Essential items such as durable rain gear, waterproof footwear, and layered clothing are indispensable for all travelers. This area of western Alaska has two contrasting climate zones: the coastal area and the interior. The coast sees far more rainfall than the interior, but has higher average temperatures.  Interior temperatures June through August average in the mid 40s with highs around 60°F. The coast has higher average temperatures in the mid 50s, reaching the upper 60s in July.
