About This Park
The remoteness of the park, combined with the varied topography, offers exceptional outdoor holiday opportunities. Those that travel in this park should be experienced and well equipped. There are no supplies of any sort and no park personnel in the immediate area.
Recent additions to the park encompass the eastern side of Atlin Mountain, the Atlin River, a portion of the south shoreline of Graham Inlet and a portion of area in the upper Willison Creek area. Atlin Mountain is a landmark viewscape from the town of Atlin. The additions have high cultural, recreational and wilderness values for the Taku River Tlingit First Nation and the local community.
Visitors cannot access the park by vehicle. Visitors planning to enter the park must do so by boat or aircraft.
