Keyes Point is a private remote fly-in community located in Alaska on Lake Clark in Lake Clark National Park.

The 40 mile long and 5 mile wide Lake Clark has been called "the essence of Alaska", for it concentrates in a relatively small area of the Alaska Peninsula, approximately 200 miles Southwest of Anchorage, a variety of features not found together in any of the other Alaska Parks: the junction of three mountain ranges, (the Alaska Range from the North, the Aleutian Range from the South, and the park's own rugged Chigmit Mountains), two active volcanoes (Iliamna and Redoubt), a coastline with rainforests on the East (similar to South East Alaska), a plateau with tundra on the West (similar to Arctic Alaska), turquoise lakes, and abundance of wildlife, hundreds of waterfalls, and dramatic scenery.

Lake Clark is located in a remote and mainly undeveloped section of Alaska. No roads lead to Keyes Point and it can only be reached by float plane or wheel plane. There are several commercial flight operators that provide air service to Keyes Point including Lake Clark Air, Illiamna Air Taxi and Pen Air.

The 4 million acre Lake Clark National Park is one of the least visited in the National Park System, averaging just over 5,000 visitors per year.

The documentary film "Alone in the Wilderness" (2003) is set in what is now the park. Most of the film was taken in 1968 and shows the Twin Lakes portion of the park.

Lake Clark is the largest of the park's many glacier lakes and is one of the most important spawning grounds for the world's largest sockeye salmon (red salmon) in North America. The area offers many fishing opportunities, Red Salmon, Lake Trout, Dolly Varden, Northern Pike and Grayling are abundant.

Keyes Point is regulated by covenants, conditions and restrictions governed by the Keyes Point Property Owners Association. Common properties including roads, the runway and rental cabins are maintained by an on-site caretaker. The runway, roads and cabins are for use by property owners only and are not open for public use. The Association employs Hoffman and Assoc. from Anchorage AK as its property managers.
