The Homestead History of Nat Hab’s Alaska Bear Camp
In 1965, an army veteran named Wayne Byers was looking for a place to settle and happened upon Alaska’s Chinitna Bay.

Today, his former property is the site of Nab Hab’s Alaska Bear Camp, a premier bear viewing location that’s as intricately tied with the local fabric as was Byers himself.
