Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve - Alaska

When planning for your trip to the park this summer, don’t forget the requirement that food must be stored in bear resistant food containers. If you don’t have them, we loan them out free of charge.  

Check out our website to see what we have available and where to get them:  http://www.nps.gov/gaar/planyourvisit/brfcs.htm
