Campgrounds & RV Parks

If driving is your plan, be ready for unforgettable vistas as you drive the historic roads and highways into or out of Haines, all known as the “scenic route”.  Bringing your accommodation with you and finding a place to camp for the night won’t be a problem.  Wake up to the sounds of birds chirping while meetings are around a campfire and the only deadline is when to roast marshmallows. Everyone needs to disconnect now and then so forget your day job just for a time and spend the night at nature’s doorstep under a blanket of stars.  There are 2 state parks, 10 miles South or 10 miles Northeast both consisting of around 30 sites and access to a picnic area, latrines, water, and a boat launch connected to the fishing grounds so grab your fishing rod.

Chilkoot and Chilkat State Parks are great for wildlife and sea life viewing, you may want to switch campsites part way through your stay. Out towards the Chilkoot is two private campgrounds, the Salmon Run and the Gathering Place, accommodating hookups and cabins. Want to stay closer to the downtown area?  We have the Oceanside and Haines Hitch-Up, both within walking distance of shopping and restaurant districts.

Hiking & Trails

For one to truly experience Haines, it’s best to get out and explore it on foot and to include the hiking trails as part of this adventure.
