    Anyone camped in Glacier Bay National Park?

    Just got back home from a cruise to Alaska with my family. We took the inside passage from Seattle to Juneau and then Skagway. From there we toured Glacier Bay National Park. We spent a whole day cruising this area with many amazing sights. A few of the park's rangers came onto the ship for the day and provided interesting commentary. Have any of you ever camped in that park and if so, what was your experience like?

    I just back from an Uncruise loop from Juneau, and we also spent just over a day at Glacier Bay:

    We docked at the visitor center where the campground is, took a hike and toured the exhibits there as you can see in the video. The CG looked pretty nice, but we just walked past it. Definitely hangable. I believe you can only get there by boat, so that would be the biggest hurdle.
