Not your ordinary camping spot

A poll was recently made in the US in order to discover some of the best camping spots. There were over 26 entries, ranging from the more popular destinations such as the Ozark National Forest in Arkansas, the Ludington State Park in Michigan or the Grand Canyon National Park of Arizona, to other more remote and less known spots on the continent. We’ve therefore decided to share with you one of the more intriguing entries of the poll, a fascinating destinations which is probably not your ordinary camping spot. Behold Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska.

First off, Glacier Bay is such an intriguing choice for a camping spot because it’s mostly water. In order to reach the park, you first have to cross a bay which serves as the entry point to the inner section of the park. The only way to get there is by boat, but once you’ve reached your destination, you will be stunned. Did I forget to mention that the park itself represents a glacier? Well, it’s a glacier, so you will be finding yourself in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by breathtaking sceneries, undisturbed by humans. There’s only one campground on the park, Bartlet Cove, where you can find a shelter and a place to store your food, among other basic facilities. You will also need a permit to camp here, which is free and easy to obtain from the visitor center.

Once you get settled, you can either go trekking through the park, or enjoy a thrilling rafting session on one of the park’s two rivers. Beware though that there are no marked hiking trails so try not to wander off to far. As for rafting, you don’t need your own boat as there is a renting center on site.

Glacier Bay is one of the few remote places that you can enjoy all by yourself, with few to no people disturbing you. Although not your ordinary camping spot, Glacier Bay should definitely be a camping spot to consider for your next outdoor escape.
