Wrangell-St Elias National Park and Preserve

4.7
World heritage site · National Parks · Hiking Trails
America's Largest National Park
The glaciers and icefields of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve continue to shape its landscape, which stretches from cloud-shrouded peaks to the waters of the Gulf of Alaska. The park's 53,320 sq km (20,587 sq mi) area is larger than Switzerland, while 5,489 m (18,008 ft) Mt. St. Elias stands as the second-highest peak in the United States. The park is far from other mainstream Alaska attractions, so it offers visitors the chance to really experience "Wild Alaska," including massive glaciers and ice-fed rivers. The mountains, meadows, forests, rivers, lakes, and coast serve up plenty of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, backpacking, fishing, rafting, mountaineering, hunting, and sea kayaking. The park prides itself on offering plenty of genuine wilderness and therefore limits the facilities it offers, so you'll need to be prepared with supplies. Whether you only want to go to Wrangell-St Elias National Park and Preserve, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United States trip planner.

Places to visit in Wrangell-St Elias National Park and Preserve

Where to stay in Wrangell-St Elias National Park and Preserve

Wrangell-St. Elias National Park provides camping at Kendesnii Campground, but there are only 10 sites here. Towns around the border of the park, such as Glennallen, Tolsona, Gakona, Chistochina, Chitina, and Kenny Lake, offer plenty of private campgrounds. The town of McCarthy is the most convenient place to stay because it sits inside park boundaries, and prices reflect this. Glennallen is the closest developed town to a park entrance. The roads connecting the towns around the park also offer bed and breakfasts, lodges, and cabins if you're looking for more amenities than camping provides.
