Description
If you want to experience, culture, history, and adventure, you're going to get it with the Caines Head State Recreation Area.This area is the site of an abandoned World War II fort, and even better, it's an area that you and your pup can explore together. This area can be reached by foot or by boat if you're coming from Seward. 

It's a shale-covered, forest-framed beach that has plenty of stopping points for both boaters and fishermen. There are picnic shelters, plenty of campsites, and even pit toilets for you and your pup. There are even a few cabins, including the Derby Cove Public Use Cabin that's near the beach at Derby Cove. These cabins are primitive sites with wood heating stoves, wooden sleeping platforms, a table and chairs or benches. 

While there's no water for you and your pup to drink at the cabin, there are nearby creeks for water sources. The only thing we recommend is purifying the water before you and your pup drink it. 

While there aren't any explicit rules for your four-legged friend, we do suggest you remember exactly where you're camping. In the heart of Alaska, especially during the summer, you're dealing with bear country - this could be incredibly dangerous for you, your pooch, and the wildlife that are nearby. To combat any danger, we suggest keeping your dog on a leash if they're not able to follow strict voice commands every time. 

It's important that you clean up your doggo's messes every time as well, as the waste won't just attract wildlife, it could potentially hurt them. We suggest keeping your dog with you at all times, not letting them wander, and keeping them tied up inside when you plan to wander without them. Reservations can be made for these sites, but a lot of them will be first come first serve.
