Gates of the Arctic National Park

The second largest National Park in the United States, Gates of the Arctic is comprised of 8.4 million acres of wild and undeveloped land. Iñupiaq and Koyukon people have lived and traveled within the boundary of the park for millennia and continue to do so today. The park contains six wild and scenic rivers and the Nunamiut Iñupiaq village of Anaktuvuk Pass lies within the park. The park was created in 1980 with the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.
