Millie'sMom: The blog is a great idea. Thanks. We've been to Totem Bight before but not since 2000. I know which bus to take, but I don't remember the cost of the park. I don 't find it on the website. Do you happen to know? I'm trying to settle what we will do on our cruise. As close as I can figure, we'll need about 3-31/2 hours including travel time. Does this sound right to you? Thanks.
I haven't been to the park, so can't help you with the details from personal experience. I did find some links that may be helpful. The park is 10 miles North of Ketchikan and I believe it is free admission.
They have a facebook page:
This link has a phone number for the rangers station and for the state park info office.
Trip Advisor about the park
Info on the bus (apparently may not run every day) and distance from the pier to the park.

Getting to Totem Bight State Historical Park
Totem Bight is located approximately 10 miles North of Ketchikan
. There are several tours & excursions
that visit Totem Bight State Historical Park, you can take the Ketchikan Public Transportation - Blue Line - bus, take a taxi, or another option is to rent a car
during your visit so that you may experience Ketchikan on your own!
Totem Bight is located immediately beside Potlatch Park
, another fabulous area to see Native American Totem Poles. I highly recommend
stopping inside the Potlach Park carving shed!
Native American Totem Poles are certainly the top Ketchikan Alaska attractions and Totem Bight State Historical Park is one of the best Totem Pole Parks in Ketchikan Alaska! Don't miss it! :-)
I just found confirmation of NO FEES at the park for admission:
