All reviews visitor center totem park beautiful walk salmon the indian river short film walking trails an easy walk cruise ship native culture great place to visit small museum bald eagles totems forest carver pole
The visitor center was closed (Monday during the winter), but I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself on the trails under the canopy of spruce & hemlock. The poles are marked with a phone # so you can call for an audio tour to learn about the...More
Great for all ages! It's well maintained so there are few (if any) tripping hazards. No stairs or hills to speak of, so its accessible to everyone. Great views and lots of opportunities to get out to the beach and check out some tide pools....More
What a great place to spend the day. We left the cruise port and had time on our tour to wander the park. It is so large that we needed more time to see the further sections. We did wander along the totem trail that...More
We were very impressed with the Totem Park, the Rain Forest Trails and the historic documentary which lasted about 20 minutes with a history of the Russian influence, the Native Culture and early life. W also enjoyed seeing the salmon running upstream.
If you are the least bit curious about the history of Russian involvement and ownership of what is now America (ownership before the 2016 election that is) by all means stop here. In typical National Park Service fashion the Historical Park goes above and beyond...More
A comfortable walk from the cruise ship, we enjoyed the prime examples and history of the totems. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. What was really fantastic was the walk through the forest behind the building. We regret we didn't do this first, as we...More
The trails behind the Totem Museum are wonderful, We walked the trails in early September when the Salmon were running. LOTS of Salmon were running. 1000's of Salmon were running.
Very, very easy to catch Salmon.
Saw a few totem Poles, but not many.
To get to the park, you just take a leisurely stroll along a paved walkway. It is not a long or difficult walk. It is a very nice walk with things to see along the way. You will enjoy it, even in the rain.🙂

We flew into Sitka and self-directed our entire vacation, so I can't speak to what the cruise may offer. However, we walked to the park in the rain from our hotel and did the tour on our own. It is free and self-guided. The trail itself is flat. And awesome! We took a cab to the hotel from the airport but other than that, we walked EVERYWHERE the entire time we were there. And we're in our 40's and NOT in the best shape! You're at sea level so walking is pretty easy.
