Portage Cove State Recreation Site

The small town of Haines lies at the north end of Alaska's southeast panhandle. Unlike most towns in Southeast Alaska, you can reach Haines by road as well as ferry. The Haines Highway runs from Haines Junction, Yukon, 150 miles south to Haines, AK.

Portage Cove State Recreational Site sits on the shoreline near downtown Haines and offers a wonderful view of the Chilkoot Inlet and surrounding mountains. There are a handful of campsites, but only for bicycle or walk-in camping.
