Upon request we can accommodate up to three people in a Deluxe Tent with an additional charge of $30 for the third person.

What is your cancellation policy at Alpenglow Luxury Camping?

The full balance of your reservation is due at the time of booking. Should you shorten the length of your reservation within 7 days of arrival or choose an early departure during your stay, you will be responsible for the entire time reserved.

Children 8 years and older are permitted. Children under 12 years must be accompanied by an adult in the tents. In no cases can we accommodate children under 8 years.

Can I cook food for myself at Alpenglow Luxury Camping?

No. We are not a campground and do not have areas for guests to cook food. For health codes we cannot allow guests to cook meals in the kitchen or use the grill. Lunches, snacks and food that does not require being heated up are OK in designated areas. There is a list of recommended restaurants in the area that can be found on the MICA Guides website. Food is NOT allowed in tents and must be stored in cars when not being used.

What do we need to bring for our stay at Alpenglow Luxury Camping?

Warm jacket, rain jacket, swimsuit and personal toiletries. We have soap for hand washing and showers. All of your linens and towels are provided. Since we use a solar energy system, please do not plan to use hair dryers.

The temperature at Alpenglow Luxury Camping is between 40 and 70°F. The early and late seasons can bring colder temperatures at night, but warm up during the day.

Are your canvas tents heated?

No. The tents are not equipped with heaters, but we do provide warm blankets and a 750 fill down comforter to make sure you stay warm at night.

Are there showers?

Yes! We have enclosed outdoor hot showers next to the hot tub with wash cloths, soap, and towels. We ask guests to wash before entering the tub.

Is there wildlife in the area?

Yes, we are in Alaska and part of the allure is the wilderness setting, but with strict guidelines and respect for the animals we don’t have an issue sharing the space. We are very strict with trash and food on our property to maintain a healthy relationship with our local wildlife. Bear sightings are VERY rare but we do have a lot of moose on the property and they tend to use our trails. We ask guests to keep their distance from moose and eyes open while walking around.
