Togiak National Widlife Refuge
West of the Wood-Tikchik State Park is the 4.7 million acre Togiak National Wildlife Refuge, located in southwest Alaska between Kuskokwim Bay and Bristol Bay. The eastern boundary of Togiak Refuge is about 350 air miles southwest of Anchorage. The Togiak Refuge is bordered on the north by Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge, and on the east by Wood-Tikchik State Park. Togiak Refuge is roadless; primary access is via air or water. Togiak Refuge features a variety of landscapes, including mountain crags, fast-flowing rivers, deep lakes, tundra, marshy lowlands, ponds, estuaries, coastal lagoons, and sea cliffs. The broad glacial valleys of the Ahklun Mountain range cut the tundra uplands, opening into coastal plains. The Ahklun Mountains spread across 80 percent of Togiak Refuge.
There are many rivers and streams accommodating fishing or hunting expeditions, float trips and other Alaska adventures within the Togiak Refuge. We can access most of these regions with our float planes. Please inquire by phone or email for pricing.
