Camping in Glacier Bay Backcountry

Free permits are required for both Bartlett Cove Campground and Glacier Bay backcountry from May 1 through September 30. To get your permit and a bear resistant food container, campers must attend a 30-minute orientation offered by request at the Bartlett Cove Visitor Information Station. Reservations are not required.

The Bartlett Cove Campground has:

  • Bear-resistant food caches
  • Firewood
  • A warming hut

If desired, campers may be dropped off in the backcountry by the Park’s concession-operated tour boat. Permits are not required for areas outside the bay. More details about camping are available from the National Park Service.
