Encompassing 13.2 million acres, the Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve stretches from one of the tallest peaks in North America, Mt. St. Elias (elevation 18,008 feet), to the ocean. This region is filled with adventures waiting to happen, mountains to be explored. Far, far removed from the hustle of cruise ships and tourist attractions, this is the wild Alaska.
People here have been living off the land in this
region for centuries, and they still do. In the town of McCarthy, you’ll find that residents are accommodating, but also that they’ve chosen to live this far "off the grid" for a reason. Respect their space and they will be warm and welcoming. Limited services are available in McCarthy. Facilities include guest lodges, a B&B, and a restaurant. There's no gas station or post office.
