"Beautifully designed and written..."
—Copper River Record
Full of local information and travel tips, this publication is the go-to, up-to-date resource for planning a visit to McCarthy and Kennecott, in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve.  

Kennecott-McCarthy Visitors Guide is published annually and distributed free in hard copy and digital formats. Printed copies are distributed from spring through fall all over the Copper  Basin, Kennecott, and McCarthy, plus sites in Anchorage, Valdez, Tok, and points between.

Our runs of 11,250 hard copies are printed in Alaska.  

In addition to Kennecott and McCarthy, the Visitors Guide also features Chitina, Kenny Lake, Copper Center, Glennallen, Valdez, and the Nabesna Road.

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.
