Public Lands range from scenic roadside campgrounds and picnic areas, to remote wilderness areas. The variety of recreational and sightseeing opportunities are endless for those wanting to experience what these national treasures have to offer.

With 300 million acres of public lands, more than half of all public lands in the United States are found in Alaska. They are managed by a patchwork of several federal and state agencies.
