Description
With 80 acres to explore, you and your doggo will love Chilkoot Lake State Recreation Park. This camping area is near the outlet to the Chilkoot River. The campground is a gorgeous area with few amenities, but plenty of views. With Sitka Spruce surrounding the campground, it's impossible not to launch into an Alaskan paradise. 

You and your pup can see fish, bears, eagles, and be presented with one-of-a-kind Alaskan experiences like fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and more! There are even four salmon runs that start in mid-June and end in mid-October. This is quite the sight to see, but unfortunately, it also makes this a bear highway. The bears frequent the river to feast on the salmon, which means you and your doggo will have to understand proper bear etiquette. 

There are a few rules that you and your pup will have to abide by if you plan to stay at this campground. For starters, your pup has to be on a leash and under control when he or she is in the developed facilities. If you and your dog are exploring the backcountry together - that's another story entirely. But if you plan to keep your dog near other people or the developed facilities, it's a leash or nothing! 

You must always clean up after your doggo's messes - this is about being courteous, of course, but has a lot to do with wildlife safety, too. Allowing your dog to leave a mess and not cleaning it up could attract dangerous wildlife to areas that they normally would not venture. Your pup must be tied within 100 feet of your cabin or tent, as well, and dogs are not encouraged to be left alone and are not allowed to wander by themselves.
