BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Established in 1910 to commemorate the 1804 Battle of Sitka between Alaska Natives and Europeans, this 113-acre area is Alaska's oldest federally designated park.
  • One of the highlights of the park is the collection of totem poles—native carvings that tell stories about a clan's history or ancestry. To learn the most about these fascinating works of art and culture, sign up for a ranger-led Carved History Walk.
  • Among the park's habitats are estuary, river, and marine intertidal shoreline. Visit mid-July to September and you may see salmon swimming up the Indian River to spawn.
