This is a great place to go to get information about the Federal Alaska Public Lands. The Rangers and Staff are all excellent speakers, enthusiastic about their work, and have a lot of great material to inform the tourist about the Public Lands.

We always stop by to get information for our canoe trips in Alaska. If the staff don't have the information, they will provide you with contact phone numbers. There are also interesting movies available, a nice little museum, and lots of brochures.

Checkout the movie presentations. We learned so much in such a short time at the center. The rangers were very courteous and knowledgeable. The displays and information were helpful with our introduction, history and planning for our visit to Alaska
