I'm traveling to Bear Glacier near Seward, AK, USA. We're planning to arrive by water taxi, camp near the glacier, and kayak from there.

Do you need a permit to camp there? I can't find anything online.

  • I'm actually not sure if it's in Kenai Fjords NP proper, but it's definitely not the campground at Exit Glacier. I can't find any info online about what park it is in or whether or not you need a permit. I'll call an outfitter tomorrow and post the results. Aug 11, 2015 at 4:59
  • Ok thanks everyone! It is indeed in Kenai Fjords NP, but according to the outfitter I'm using (Seward Water Taxi) no permit is required for backpacking. Aug 12, 2015 at 7:20
