Description

One of the most beautiful spots available to you and your pup in Alaska, the Agofnak Island State Park is a rugged, dense, and gorgeous area near Kodiak Island in the heart of the State. If you and your doggo are hard-core explorers looking to go off the grid and enjoy all that Alaska has to offer, this is the spot for you. 

There are two public use cabins available in this park for rental year-round for those who are brave enough to access this area. Most of the park area is undeveloped, left alone, and pristine as can be. The cabins themselves are hard to get to - they only have access via floatplane as there are no developed trails to get you there (so, you and your pooch have to be ready to hard-core explore). What you'll find here, though, is pristine land, nature that's entirely been left alone, fishing and hunting that people only dream of, and densely forested Sitka spruce terrain. 

There are a few downsides to camping here with your dog, though. For example, this area is known for its bear population - which, includes Kodiak brown bears and grizzly bears. These bears are known to be aggressive and territorial, and they don't discriminate. 

There are no established rules for your dog in this State Park except that you must keep your dog under control and do all that you can to protect the shorebirds. Never allow your dog to chase wildlife, and if that requires that you keep your pooch on a leash at all times, you'll have to do this. Again, there are no rules set in stone about how you should allow your dog to behave, but if you're unable to keep your dog under control, you'll likely put the wildlife, and yourself and your dog, in serious danger.
