In 1948, Alaska had no lodges devoted exclusively to sportfishing. Ray Petersen recognized the rich tourism potential of the Katmai area and decided to combine his flourishing flying business with remote site fishing camps. He built and, in 1950, opened five separate camps in the area, all under the name of Angler's Paradise Lodges. Brooks Camp is one of them, and the most famous. In 1999, the Alaska State Legislature recognized Ray Petersen as "The Father of Alaska's Sportfishing Lodges."
Today, Brooks Camp is also home to the Visitor Center of Katmai National Park. The park, originally a National Monument created to preserve the famed Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes, is famous for volcanoes (fourteen classified as "active"), brown bears (the highest concentration in the world), fish, and rugged wilderness. It is also the site of the Brooks River National Historic Landmark with North America's highest concentration of prehistoric human dwellings (about 900).
To log this cache, find the interpretive sign at the posted coordinates that is entitled, "Katmai National Park" (be sure to keep a lookout for bears in the area). Snap and post a photo of yourself with your GPSr standing near the sign (old vacation photos and photos downloaded from the web don't count). In addition, please email me with the answer to this question: What is the subtitle of the sign (the line just below "Katmai National Park")?
I hope that you enjoy your visit to this historically significant and spectacular spot!
