“Totem Poles in Sitka - Well worth the visit”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Over the years I have visited this park several times. It is always a joy to walk the trails and view the magnificent totem poles. The park is well maintained and the tourist information is helpful in understanding the different types of totem poles.

“Totem Poles in Sitka”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Our stop in Sitka was filled with historical sights and the National Park was full of interesting totem poles depicting historical events. There were many different types but they all had some significant meaning. Many were colorful and quite tall.The Park rangers gave you their knowledge of the special meanings of these totem poles and one could do a short walk through the forest areas while in the park. These trees are very huge and beautiful in height.

Reviewed September 27, 2013

Totems are hand carved and last 100/150 years they cap them now to preserve them longer these are amazing artifacts each with its own story
