Camping in Gateway Communities

Where can I camp without a watercraft?

All park campsites are only accessible by watercraft, with the exception of two primitive campsites located remotely along the Kab-Ash hiking trail. If you are without access to a watercraft there are public and private campgrounds available outside of park boundaries that offer tent/car camping or camper/RV camping.
