There is a new permanent bridge going across the famous Brooks River in Katmai National Park. This elevated boardwalk improves visitor access along with reducing the lengthy delays for the awaiting bear watchers. Most importantly, it helps the wildlife movement in the area and access to the lower Brooks. Long term, this will help improve the experience of visitors while also reducing the impact that the visitors have on the ecosystem. The bridge itself is almost 1,200 feet long at an average of 9 feet high. It also has new webcams located throughout.
Along with our local and fly out fishing opportunities, we do offer unmatched Bear Viewing Tours that are some of the best in the world. If you want any more information on Rapids Camp Lodge, reach out here!
