Once in Sitka, visitors without their own vehicles can travel to the park by foot, rental car, taxi, bus, or bicycle. The downtown area is not very large, and most points of interest are within walking distance of each other.
The park Visitor Center is located at the east end of Lincoln Street, approximately one-fourth mile from downtown Sitka.
