Shuyak Island State Park

If you’re really looking to get off the grid during your time in Alaska, Shuyak Island is the place to go. While only 54 air miles from Kodiak, a trip here isn’t for your average tourist. There are no roads, very limited transportation options to and from the island, and your only sleeping options are state park public-use cabins or pitching a tent. But the scenery, remoteness, wildlife, and unparalleled kayaking through the island’s coastal forests make it worth the effort.
