Description

The Campground Trail starts from the Forest Trail, just off the Beach Trail. This is at the northeast end of the campground area. The campground has spacious sites in the tall fir trees of Glacier Bay's moss forest. This trail runs through the moss forest of the campground. It parallels the Beach Trail, and ends at the Beach Trail, after a right turn.
