30 Lakes in 30 Days | Lake Clark | Alaska

Alaska alone is breathtaking. Add SUP and you can see it from a whole different angle. Alaska’s Lake Clark National Park is an outdoor paradise; the trail-free environment allows camping wherever the wilderness allows, wildlife at every turn, water recreation, pure beauty and everything that comes with it. But the extra special detail about Lake Clark is the journey to get there. It’s extremely secluded; finding yourself at Lake Clark requires a trek through Alaskan bush, hiring a float-plane pilot or hitching a ride with a dogsled team. Talk about a legendary start to a spectacular trip!

Lodging and the nearby Port Alsworth (blink and you’ll miss it) offer rental gear and accommodations to suit any requests. The gear rentals allow you to paddle through the numerous rivers and surrounding lakes, and guided tours are ranger-guided tours are also on offer. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, the national park has no fees. No reservations and no permits are needed to access any of the recreational activities. Lake Clark lets you have your own adventure, but since we are talking about Alaska, bear and water safety is a huge part of the experience.
