ALASKA

 

Denali NP & PRES
Denali, AK

This stamp is available at two locations, and you must ask for it at both.  The easier of the two is the main visitor center located less than a mile from the Parks Highway. You can also get the stamp in the Eielson Visitor Center at  milepost 66 of the Denali Park road.  You will not be able to ride your motorcycle to Eielson.  You must take a park tour bus, or ride a bicycle, the later choice preferable if you would like to feed the grizzly bears. The main course would be you.

Denali NP & PRES - Talkeetna
Talkeetna, AK

Talkeetna is a small town southeast of Denali, and the jumping off point for climbers preparing to ascend Mount McKinnley.  The excellent ranger station is located at the end of the Talkeetna Spur Road, about 15 miles from the Parks Highway.  Follow the road through town and turn left just before the campground.  Ask the ranger at the information desk for  the stamp.

Gates of The Arctic NP & PRES - Coldfoot
Coldfoot, AK

Coldfoot is 60 miles north of the Arctic Circle, along  the Dalton Highway.  The Dalton is a very difficult road, and you will have to ride through dirt, mud and rocks for more than 200 miles to get here.  The visitor center is located a few hundred feet off the Dalton, at the northern entrance to Coldfoot.  If you are lucky, Gwen will be there with this stamp.

Gates of The Arctic NP & PRES - Fairbanks
Fairbanks, AK

This is one of two stamps located in Fairbanks.  Both are at the National Park Service office at 201 1st Avenue, a couple blocks east of Cushman Street.  Call 907-456-0281 for hours of operation.

Kenai Fjords NP - Exit Glacier
Seward, AK

The turnoff at mile 3.7 of the Seward Highway leads nine miles to Exit Glacier. The last 4.2 miles of this road are unpaved gravel.  The stamp is in the Ranger Station at the start of the trail. 

Kenai Fjords NP
Seward, AK

This stamp is at the main visitor center in downtown Seward.  Take the Seward Highway (route 9) into town and follow the signs.   Parking is a pain here, and a nasty ranger threatened to tow my motorcycle from the NPS only spaces.  Hey, I was ONLY going to the NPS office!

Lake Clark NP & PRES
Anchorage, AK

This park is only accessible by air.  Float planes can be booked from Homer, Kenai, or Anchorage, and the stunning flight takes less than an hour.  This stamp is kept at Grace Hall, 4230 University Drive, Suite 311, on the grounds of the University of Alaska.  

Wrangell St. Elias NP & PRES - Chitina
Chitina, AK

Take the Richardson Highway (route 4) south from Glennallen and turn left onto route 10.  Follow the road 33 miles to the town of Chitina.  The ranger station is one of the few buildings in town.

Wrangell St. Elias NP & PRES - Copper Center
Copper Center, AK

Copper Center is the headquarters for this park.  Follow the Richardson Highway (route 4) south from Glennallen for 10 miles.  Bear left on to the Copper Center road and the visitor center is about 1 mile on the right.

Wrangell St. Elias NP & PRES - Slana
Slana, AK

Slana is about 66 miles south of Tok on the Tok Cut-Off Road (route 1), towards Glennallen.  The ranger station is less than one mile south of the highway on the Nabesna road.

Yukon Charley Rivers NPRES - Eagle
Eagle, AK

Eagle is at the north end of the Taylor Highway, a 170 mile dirt road from Tetlin Junction on the Alaska Highway. Actually the first 20 miles are chip-sealed.  The Taylor Highway is not open in winter and often closed due to washouts.  When you reach Eagle turn left at  the intersection.  Pass the public well and museum on your left, and continue across the grass airstrip. The visitor information center is at the end of the path, on the far side of the playing field. 

Yukon Charley Rivers NPRES - Fairbanks
Fairbanks, AK

This is one of two stamps located in Fairbanks.  Both are at the National Park Service office at 201 1st Avenue, a couple blocks east of Cushman Street.  Call 907-456-0281 for hours of operation.
