Stark, awe-inspiring coastline, record-breaking mountain peaks, gorgeous glaciers and unique wildlife make camping in Alaska akin to nothing else in the world. Pitch your tent on the banks of one of Alaska's 3 million lakes and spend the day hiking through beautiful temperate rainforest, or stay in a locally-owned cabin, yurt or ecolodge for something a little different. In a state this big, beautiful and unpopulated, there's no shortage of campsites; you'll find hundreds of spots just within the shadow of towering Denali, and climbers can take advantage of the breadth of mountain and rock climbing opportunities that abound. Head far north to the Kavik River Camp for an Arctic adventure complete with world-class hunting, fishing and wildlife watching, or venture south to explore the epic glaciers while you still can. A few days of camping in Seward to explore the impressive Kenai fjords are the perfect start or end to any trip. Alaska is a world unto its own, and outdoor enthusiasts and novice nature-lovers alike will find something to marvel at in the great state of Alaska.
