America's Most Scenic Campgrounds
Bartlett Cove Campground, Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska
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.
