Visiting Your Chugach National Forest

From the Kenai Peninsula to Prince William Sound, to the eastern shores of the Copper River Delta, the forest is full of special places - there is something for everyone on the Chugach National Forest.

Whether you have an hour or several days we have something for you to do.  You can request a visitor guide by contacting us at  907-743-9500, by email or you can stop by our office.
