"Leave No Trace" Top 5 Page for this destination Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve Local Custom Tip by mrclay2000

  under the spruce forest and behind the tall grass
by mrclay2000

Campers and kayakers in the upper bays are to leave no trace of their presence. You are required to leave the area as you found it, with one exception. If the area has already been trampled down, you are expected to find another location. Backcountry campsites in Glacier Bay are plentiful but not always easy to discover. Like Denali, Glacier Bay insists that you camp where your tent is invisible to other park-goers, but where Denali suggests camping in the open, Glacier Bay invites you to haul your tent into the spruce or alder away from the beach. Kayaks are also to be tethered where they are invisible to other park-goers.
