Bartlett Cove Campground, Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska

6 of 13

The Site: Set among moss-covered trees right on the edge of whale-filled Bartlett Cove, the spots in this walk-in campground look like they jumped out of J.R.R. Tolkien’s imagination. Each has a water view and is within walking distance of the dock, where wildlife- and glacier-viewing boat tours of Glacier Bay depart.

The Basics: 35 sites; shared bear-proof food shelters, shared fire pit with firewood, shared warming hut, no water, vaulted toilets; no RVs; free; no reservations.
