Dick Proenneke's cabin at Twin Lakes Tour in Lake Clark National Park

Dick Proenneke built this cabin on Twin Lakes in Lake Clark National Park by hand, and lived here for 30 years. His story inspired books and movies, including "One Man’s Wilderness" and "Alone in the Wilderness". Dick Proenneke’s journals were the information source for the stories about his life, and show how even in “modern” times a simpler life is possible. Park Service personnel are available on site to answer your questions. The flight each way is one hour, and the flight path takes you either through scenic Lake Clark Pass, or over the majestic peaks of the upper Alaska Range.

What is a Critical Habitat Area?

The critical habitat area established at Redoubt Bay is to protect the millions of birds that migrate, nest and live in the area. It is the world’s only nesting ground for the Tule goose, a sub-species of the White-fronted goose. At least one-third of all birds recorded in Alaska can be viewed here. Ask to borrow a set of binoculars for bird viewing!
