Interested in hiking, camping, fishing, or planning the trip of a lifetime? Well, then your first stop should be at the Alaska Public Lands Information Centers!

Alaska's public lands account for more than 300 million acres - an area almost twice the size of Texas! Public lands include state and national parks, forests, refuges, wild rivers, historical areas, and more.

The Alaska Public Lands Information Centers were established in 1980 by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act to "provide visitors with meaningful, safe, and enjoyable experiences and to encourage them to protect the fragile resources they will encounter."

The Alaska Centers represent nine different state and federal agencies managing land and resources in Alaska. You can obtain most of the information you need to safely enjoy Alaska, from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the North to Admiralty Island in the Southeast.

There are four Alaska Public Land Information Centers strategically positioned throughout the state to serve visitors and residents alike. Each center has a regional emphasis, but also represents the state as a whole.

The area encompassed by Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve is wilder today than it was 100 years ago. Many small cities sprang up along the Yukon River as gold was discovered, but then disappeared as quickly as they were built. Now, the Preserve is wild, with only a few year-round residents.
