Bendeleben and Belt Lakes
Mount Bendeleben (3,730'), possibly the most prominent dormant volcano on western Alaska's Seward Peninsula, rises about 30 miles east of the Imuruk basaltic volcanic field and about 7 miles east of Nome's Kougarok Road, near the Pilgrim Hot Springs turnoff.

This is a dreamy frontier of cinder cones, hot springs, granite tors, shallow lakes, willow-lined streams, and massive clouds of skeeters clustering during mild summer months with very, very long days.

The BLM administers one campground, the Salmon Lake Campground, located southwest of Mount Bendeleben at Salmon Lake, near milepost 40 along the Kougarok Road.

Rock on, Kougarok !
