Camping & RV Travel

Fishing lodges, hotels, bed & breakfast and vacation rentals offer a wide variety of accommodation choices, along with Ketchikan’s private and public camping and RV facilities. The U.S. Forest Service’s Ward Cove Recreation area provides three camp grounds, while Alaska State Parks operates one at Settler’s Cove State Park, with water and public lavatories available at all locations. The U.S. Forest Service and Alaska State Parks recreational cabins are another option to consider for camping in the wilderness. Most publicly managed recreation lands around the Inside Passage allow tent camping but check restrictions before you go for regulations. In town services include groceries, gas, diesel and propane, shower and laundry facilities, automotive parts and repair services, a dump station and local outfitters to purchase or rent camping and fishing equipment.
