The Kennecott & McCarthy Visitors Guide is published annually and distributed free to regional visitors in hard copy and digital formats. Full of local information, travel tips, and relevant advertisements, this publication is the go-to, up-to-date resource for planning a visit to the Kennicott Valley, in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve.
In addition to Kennecott and McCarthy, the Visitors Guide also features the communities of Chitina, Kenny Lake, Copper Center, Glennallen, and Valdez.
Like all businesses in Kennecott and McCarthy, the Visitors Guide is locally-owned and locally-grown. We're pleased to connect our friends and neighbors operating here and in neighboring gateway communities with independent travelers from Alaska and beyond.
