Glacier Ranger District

A sunny day looking out on Mt ALice on the Kenai Peninsula

The Glacier Ranger District encompasses most of western Prince William Sound. The Sound is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Until you've been there you have no idea what southcentral Alaska is all about. Rainy day or sunny day, any day in Prince William Sound is a once in a lifetime day.

Bald eagles, brown bears, silver salmon, killer whales - they are all here in abundance. Come and see, take the time.
