Description
This campground and state park is one of the best ways for you and your doggo to enjoy all the natural wonder that Alaska has to offer without going too far off the beaten path. A seasonal campground, you and your pooch can explore Chilkat State Park's incredible views including things like the Chilkat Inlet and the Rainbow and Davidson Glaciers. It's also a wonderful spot for wildlife viewing, giving you plenty of chances to see seals, whales, porpoises, bears, mountain goats and plenty more! 

This campground gives you and your pup access to three tails, including Seduction Point Trail, Battery Point Trail, and Mount Riley Trail - each offers you a different hike with plenty of views, but be sure you and your doggo are ready for these trails (skill-wise). 

At this campground, you'll find about 9,900 acres of land to explore as well as 35 regular campsites, 4 walk-in campsites, and 35 RV Size campsites. Expect picnic sites, latrines, water, and picnic shelters. This facility is an ADA facility, so it's pretty well taken care of. While there's no listed pet fee, it's important to note that you and your pup can only enjoy this campground seasonally, as it's open from May to September. 
While there are no listed rules about how to handle your dog while you're in the campground, it's probably best to practice a safe approach by leashing your dog when they're near or around other people.

Additionally, you're camping in Alaska, so wildlife is going to have to be a huge factor in your consideration - ensure that your dog is never allowed to wander off alone, never leaves your side, and is able to follow strict voice commands. Always clean up after your dog and never leave a mess - not only is it rude to your fellow campers, it can attract dangerous wildlife!
