Alpenglow Luxury Camping is perfect for a party of two, with tents that accommodate a pair comfortably. Upon request we can accommodate up to three people in a Deluxe Tent with an additional charge of $30 for the third person. Please select number of people when checking out to make sure we have the third person in your reservation.
Our traditional-style canvas tents are set on a permanent cedar floor with a covered porch, and include plenty of blankets with a down comforter to keep you cozy at night. Two Adirondack chairs allow you to enjoy the spacious deck and beautiful views of the surrounding area.

In addition to our covered common area, this area includes a lush green lawn and campfire area. Nestled in nearby trees are the hot showers and cedar hot tub with great views of the nearby peaks.
Our cute and tidy outhouse is just a short walk from the tent. Flushing toilets are also available for use just two minutes up the path.

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.
