The Tok Visitor Center is the gateway to many extensive public lands and scenic rivers. Stop in for local destination information, as well as maps, brochures, and know-how about the rest of Alaska.

If you're driving into Alaska from the Yukon, the Alaska Public Lands Information Center in Tok is a must see.

The Tok Alaska Public Lands Information Center is a year-round facility welcoming nearly 10,000 visitors, residents, and students annually. Located in the Tok Combined Facility, the center hosts a trip planning area, fish, bear and bird exhibits, along with a display of native arts and crafts. 

This center specifically caters to visitors driving in remote eastern Alaska and into the Yukon.

One of the subjects people are most interested in are the local driving conditions; specifically, the infamous frost heaves located to the east of Tok.
