We asked the locals "What would you do if you were visiting Ketchican?". That is how we found the totem park. There were 2 totems "under construction" as well as an antique (30s and 40s) car display and an antique guns on display including a Civil War gatlin gun. After a brief walk through a wilderness path, we were treated to these great sites. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Partially a state park, there was no entrance fee. A potlatch lodge and a few out buildings ringed the totem park itself. We spent a very enjoyable hour there, arriving and leaving on a local bus--Sr rate $.50. You can't beat that bargain.

We went from a cruise ship and had a terrific tour guide. It was interesting and informative. We liked the clan houses and other village houses. Of course, we enjoyed the totem poles. The highlight was the young man carving the totem pole. Although I am not into antique cars, I have to admit that I enjoyed them.

Nice totems and tribal house. We had an informative tour guide that explained everything. There is also a place where you can see totems being carved as well as a large gift shop across the street. I t a little ways out of town but worth a stop.

Potlatch Totem Park is just beyond the parking area for Totem Bight. The most prominent feature is the large gift shop, but behind and beyond the gift shop is the totem park which, while not as nice as Totem Bight State Park, is still worth a few minutes. Since we had a little time before catching the city bus back to town, we strolled through Potlatch park.
