Where is Lake Clark National Park?
On the west side of the Cook Inlet opposite the Kenai Peninsula, Lake Clark National Park and Preserve is nestled in a stunning landscape. On an area of 145,000 square kilometers, 160 kilometers southwest of Anchorage a natural kaleidoscope consisting of high mountain ranges glaciers, rock towers of granite, thunderous waterfalls, a wave-like coastline and the largest lake in Alaska spreads.
At the heart of the park is Lake Clark, a 67-kilometre-long turquoise-coloured lake surrounded by mountains. Chigmit Mountains also include Mount Iliamna, 3000 metres high, and Mount Redoubt, 3100 metres high. In 1990, the two active volcanoes with full force threw tons of ash into the air, which was carried to Anchorage. The relative proximity to Alaska’s largest city should not belie the fact that Lake Clark is completely offside from the shot, and difficult to access. Not even 5000 visitors per year find their way into the Park.
Lake Clark Park is home to almost the entire range of wild animals found in the sub – Arctic regions: Brown and black bears, moose, Mulchatna Caribbean flock with over 100,000 animals, Dale sheep and Wolves. And off the coast of seals, Steller sea lions, Beluga whales and sea otters cavort. The lakes and rivers are richly stocked with salmon, Pike, Dolly Varden, rainbow trout and other fish species and make the hearts of hobby anglers beat faster.
