” Covering 3.3 million acres of rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, temperate rainforest, wild coastlines and deep sheltered fjords, Glacier Bay National Park is a highlight of Alaska’s Inside Passage and part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site—one of the world’s largest international protected areas. From sea to summit, Glacier Bay offers limitless opportunities for adventure and inspiration.
Camping in Bartlett Cove is limited to the developed campground. Obtain a free campground permit from the Visitor Information Station between May 1 and September 30. From May 1 to September 30, all overnight backcountry users (including kayakers) must register for a free permit and complete an orientation. There is no limit to the number of permits issued per-day. We recommend that camping parties complete their orientation and permit application in advance of and before the planned departure date. ” – NPS
