Climate in Iliamna

Iliamna is 225 miles southwest of  Anchorage, and summers can be quite mild, with temperatures ranging from 50 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  That said, it is a maritime coastal environment, and there are storms from time to time, with wide temperature variations within the same day.  With that in mind, we have compiled a recommended gear list.
