Bettles

Bettles Ranger Station

Even though Bettles is the smallest village in Alaska, this remote, fly-in community serves as the most common launching-off point for visitors into Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. The Bettles Ranger Station is open year-round and serves visitors interested in or planning trips into Kanuti Wildlife Refuge and Gates of the Arctic. The NPS generally staffs the visitor center; however, both the FWS and NPS share maintenance of the facility and have year-round staff with offices in the building. NPS covers the utilities for the building, while FWS pays for utilities for the shared bunkhouse also located in Bettles. In addition, guests may enjoy exhibits, films and interpretive programs while visiting the facility.

The FWS and NPS also share a bunkhouse in Bettles; the FWS is the lead for this arrangement.

Coldfoot

Arctic Interagency Visitor Center

Fairbanks

Fairbanks Alaska Public Lands Information Center

FAPLIC is one of four centers found throughout the state that serves as your one-stop shopping experience for all information regarding public lands in Alaska. These centers provide information and education for all state and federal public land agencies in Alaska: National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Geological Survey, US Forest Service, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Alaska Department of Commerce and Economic Development, and Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

The Fairbanks center is located in the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center. The NPS is the lead agency for FAPLIC and provides all staff for the location. It operates much like a typical NPS visitor center. FAPLIC provides brochures, maps, interpretive and education programs, exhibits, films, and trip planning assistance for all public lands in Alaska.
