Alagnak River Wildlife

Bears, moose and bald eagles are some of the well-known species you will commonly see, but the region has plenty more to offer, including caribou, beaver, wolves, and over 150 bird species!

Katmai National Park and Preserve, covering over 3.5 million acres, is home to one of the largest concentrations of brown bear in the world. With the location of the Alagnak Lodge on the western edge of the park, bears are commonly seen. They are found scouring the riverbanks or swimming the river during late afternoon and early evening. You will long remember seeing bears in their natural habitat as one of the highlights of your visit.

Moose are less commonly seen than bears, but are often seen swimming the river, or grazing in meadows along the banks. Finding an eagle of takes no more effort than walking out of the lodge and looking down the bluff upon which the lodge sits.
