There’s only one real campground at Glacier Bay National Park but if your plan is to stick close to the park’s core and not kayak into the backcountry, it’s a beautiful place to stay. Bartlett Cove is a large, walk-in campground (a short 1/4-mile walk for which the park provides wheelbarrows to help schlep your stuff), but the campsites are relatively sequestered among old-growth Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and wild blueberry bushes teeming with fruit. Located just meters from the shore of Bartlett Cove, you’re as likely to see sea otters frolicking in daylight hours as you are to hear whales calling at night. A communal firepit and warming hut will help keep you toasty on the often-foggy, sometimes frigid Alaskan coast.
