Camping Alaska is a guide to the public and private campgrounds of Alaska accessible by road as well as by the Alaska Marine Highway ferry system. It includes detailed descriptions of, and directions to, 300 campgrounds statewide—from remote islands in southeast Alaska to sprawling tundra camps high above the Arctic Circle. Alaska is home to an array of campgrounds. Some are remote and muddy; some offer mud baths at luxury spas. Each is unique, be it rugged or resort-style. It is not just the amenities that separate these campgrounds—no other state has such geographic diversity. Campers can choose between an extraordinary range of settings, from seaside sand dunes to dripping rain forests, from rolling tundra to icy fjords and high mountain peaks. Camping Alaska is organized by regions, with a substantial introduction on camping within each.
