Glacier Bay National Park is quite large at 3.3 million acres, and encompasses wild mountains, glaciers, temperate rainforests, and rough coastlines. There are many opportunities for adventure here, and lots of wildlife including brown bears, mountain goats, seals, whales, and eagles.

Glacier Bay National Park is not very dog friendly, unfortunately. Dogs are not allowed on any trails or the campground, but they are allowed on the roads in the Bartlett Cove developed area, and a small section of the beach in the Bartlett Cove area between the two docks. Dogs are also allowed on boats.
