Visitors Center and Programs

Food Supplies and Concessions
Food Supplies: Food is not available within the Recreation Area. Drinking water is scarce at times; there are few year-round sources. All water must be boiled at least five minutes to avoid ingesting parasites common to Alaskan surface waters.
Concessions: There are no concessions available.
Bears and other wildlife can be dangerous. Keep a clean camp and wash food odors from your hands and clothing. Never cook or take food into your tent and store food away from camp, suspended high in a tree. Do not camp on game trails.
Do not walk on or disturb the buildings at South Beach. They are not safe.
