These 4 State Parks in Alaska Will Knock Your Socks Off
By Casea Peterson|Updated on January 11, 2022(Originally published January 06, 2022)
Casea Peterson grew up archery hunting, fishing, and camping throughout the Pacific Northwest. Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
Everyone knows that Alaska is a breathtaking state to visit or live in. Some areas of the The Last Frontier are even more spectacular, though. These areas have been dedicated and preserved as state parks. These are some of the best state parks in Alaska, and they each offer visitors incredible vistas. There’s nothing like visiting one of these parks and getting glimpses into the life of Alaskan wildlife when you see it in its natural habitat. With so many state parks to visit in Alaska, it’s tough to narrow down the very best, but we’ve chosen four of our favorites. These are each truly one of a kind and perfect ways to see all the beauty that our state has to offer.
