You may have camped in some pretty great places, but Chilkat State Park, located near the southern end of Chilkat Peninsula south of Haines, Alaska, is absolutely fabulous. The campsites are spacious and tree-sheltered, set far enough apart to offer privacy. There is beach access,...More

Getting there required going over a gravel road full of very deep potholes then going down a very steep hill with sharp switch back turns. Twice as bad coming back out. Use 4 wheel drive (if you have it ) to make the climb easier...More

We ended our day in Chilkat State Park after exploring north of Haines. A really beautiful park with camp sites, boat ramp and a picnic area. We enjoyed a break in the picnic area viewing the glacier as various wildlife. Seeing mountains rise from sea...More

The trail is very well maintained and quite diverse as it travels through dense forest, moose meadows, and along the coast. Very nice hike. There are some up and down sections but this is a relatively flat trail for 7 miles. We went on a...More

I walk here frequently. There is a loop of trail around Lehunua Island (not an island anymore) where the road ends at the boat ramp. It offers a lot of variety in a short walk. The first 1.5 miles of the Seduction Point Trail was...More

The hike through this temperate rain forest was beautiful. Our guide, Kris, was great. . . very knowledgeable and personable. At our rest stop, he had all kinds of goodies for us including hot chocolate and salmon balls. it was memorable and exhilarating.

We had a little time left before dark, so we drove out from Haines past Mud Bay (prettier than it sounds) to see Chilkat State Park. The road switched to gravel and then to a very steep 15% grade winding down the hill. If I...More

Whenever we go to Haines for vacation, we make sure to take a drive to this beautiful park. From the boat ramp past the campground you have a terrific view oh a number of glaciers, including Rainbow Glacier. If you are lucky, you can also...More

My nephew had his wedding ceremony at this park, on a gorgeous point of rock we had to make a short hike to reach. It was well worth it--Rainbow Glacier and its waterfall were the backdrop as they made their vows.
