Where to stay in Katmai National Park and Preserve

Katmai National Park allows Katmailand, Inc. to run two lodges on park land: Brooks Lodge and Grosvenor Lodge. Both offer rustic accommodations and food and beverage service. You can also bunk down in a handful of other privately owned and operated lodges around the border of the park. If you're unable to secure a place to stay in any of these spots, try to reserve a room at one of the lodges in the town of King Salmon, which lies east of the park. The park's developed Brooks Camp campground provides a place to pitch your tent, or you can camp in the wilderness.
