"Beautifully designed and written..."
—Copper River Record
Kennecott-McCarthy Visitors Guide is published annually and distributed free in hard copy and digital formats. Printed copies are distributed from May through fall at dozens of sites from Anchorage through the Copper Basin and Valdez and on out to KMXY, and beyond. The 2021 run of 9,000 hard copies was printed in Alaska.
Full of local information and travel tips, 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.
