The region around Lake Clark features four active volcanoes, including Mount Redoubt, as well as an abundance of rivers, glaciers, and waterfalls. Temperate rainforests, a tundra plateau, and three mountain ranges complete the landscape.[1]

Lake Clark National Park is dog friendly, and dogs can go throughout the park while on a leash, as well as camp with you. However, NPS recommends not bringing dogs to Lake Clark National park for a couple reasons: bears are common in the park, as are other wild animals such as moose and wolves. In addition to physical dangers, dogs can transmit disease either to or from other animals. Lake Clark National Park is also remote, and typically accessed by plane or boat.
