Outdoor stays for every style

Find your new favorite spot.

Perched on the midst of one of America’s largest wilderness areas, Juneau is made for adventure. Just minutes out of town, you can explore an Alaskan rainforest or see glaciers from the Ice Age. Wake up to the sound of calving glaciers at Mendenhall Lake Campground. Just 13 miles from downtown Juneau, this spot has tent sites and an RV park with full hookups; hike into 7 backpacker spots. Nearby, the West Glacier Trail takes you past blue icebergs and up to a spectacular view of the glacier. A few miles away on Glacier Highway, Auke Bay has ocean and mountain views to spare. Here Auk Village Campground has 11 sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Hike down to the ocean for excellent fishing, berry-picking, kayaking, and bear-spotting. In the surrounding Tongass National Forest, try biking, hunting, or rock climbing. Both Mendenhall Lake and Auk Village are open from May through September. Are the Forest Service campgrounds full? Between Juneau and the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal, you can also book private RV sites and rustic cabins. If you’re looking to get off the grid, you’re in luck. Juneau allows camping on undeveloped forest lands—just stay a quarter mile away from the road. Be sure to store food in bear boxes or in your vehicle for safety.
