More Alaska Recreation Areas | Tongass National Forest

Public lands on the Tongass consist of glimmering rain forests, glaciers and icefields, spectacular scenery, mountains, waterways, and thousands of islands separated by straits and channels. Over 400 species of terrestrial and marine wildlife, fish, and shellfish abound. Some species, such as the bald eagle and the brown bear, are endangered in other parts of the United States, but thrive in your forest.

The Tongass National Forest offers outstanding recreation opportunities, some very different from anything you’ll experience in National Forests in the lower 48 states.

You can camp in a campground – or in a cabin. You can hike through dense forest, alpine meadow, or on a wooden boardwalk trail through peat bogs called muskegs. You can explore world-class caves. You can enjoy salt water fjords and unending waterways by canoe or kayak, your own motor or sail boat, charter boat, ferry, or cruise ship. You can watch bears, eagles, whales, and countless other wild animals  in their natural settings. You can visit glaciers by land or sea. And of course, you can fish, in fresh or salt water environments, everything from herring to trout, salmon to halibut. For a truely Alaskan experience, visit the Tongass.
