Worth a quick visit but it really is a 10/15 minute look, see & take some photos! The gift shop on site is probably cheaper than in Ketchikan town.

This park has so much history and wonderful art work in the Totems. Our guide was also very informative and HAPPY to be doing her job for us. There is some walking but not hard. Great photo opportunities as well.

We walked here from town. The location of the totem poles and clan house is beautiful and well-worth a visit. They site compares well with other Totem poles in the area

Cross the street from the cruise port and catch the bus in front of this brown store front with the lime green window frames. $2 each way for adults. Kids 12 and under are free. Exact cash needed.

visited this location 2018 and 2016, do not miss going to this location, the views, all the Totem polls have such a cool history, the tour is really good too, or you can drive to this location on your own.

We sent to Totem Bight State Historical Park as part of a cruise excursion. I am not really 'into' totem poles but I am into beautiful scenery and nature and to that end it was great. There are a number of totem poles as well...More

Even though it was pouring rain, we hopped in a taxi with our driver/guide Art, and made our way to Totem Bight State Park. It was lush, green, and beautiful. The totems and their history was amazing. We loved it!

I don't think so- there is so much to learn about if you like history. I joined up with a tour group-they are so welcoming in Alaska and that took over an hour and then we explored on our own. There is also a nice gift... More

No, This is one place that doesn't. The information station has coffee/tea for donation. There may have been small items for purchase which I don't remember, but unlike almost any other place, there was no gift shop.

No but you can take the city bus on the main street. There should be a bus stop right in front of the coffee shop, across the street from where the ships arrive.this will save you money.
