The Homestead History of Nat Hab’s Alaska Bear Camp

—By Laura Kiniry
In 1965, an army veteran named Wayne Byers was looking for a place to settle and happened upon Alaska’s Chinitna Bay. He took advantage of the state’s homesteading rights to stake his claim on a 17.5-acre parcel of land between the mountain and Cook Inlet. 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.
