Where to stay in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve

Glacier Bay National Park maintains one serviced campground, but the wilderness camping options here are practically unlimited. If you prefer lodging, the park-run Glacier Bay Lodge offers rooms, a restaurant, and outstanding views of the surrounding wilderness. It sits 16 km (10 mi) up the road from the hamlet of Gustavus, which itself supports a wide selection of inns, lodges, and bed and breakfasts. Whether you choose to stay in the park or in Gustavus, reserve in advance for a summer visit as accommodations fill up fast.
