While Denali and Kenai Fjords are probably the most well known of Alaska’s National Parks, Lake Clark is a far less touristed but equally as impressive alternative. About 100 miles from Anchorage, this park boasts some spectacular scenery from snowy waterfalls and glaciers to active volcanoes and the state’s largest lake, a teal-blue wonder surrounded by mountains. Perhaps the best reason to visit though is for the wildlife. Lake Clark National Park contains caribou, brown and black bears, moose, sea lions, beluga whales, and more.
