About

Chilkat State Park is located seven miles south of Haines on Mud Bay Road. This park offers a log cabin visitor center, 32-site campground, picnic area, boat launch and trails. The campground sits in a mixed forest of evergreens and deciduous trees at the edge of Chilkat Inlet. The boat launch provides access to the inlet and the run of king salmon in early June. The visitor centers offers incredible views of Chilkat Inlet and Rainbow and Davidson Glaciers. The center also has wildlife spotting scopes so you can spot the inlet wildlife, such as seals, porpoises, and whales. Visitors have even been able to spy on bears and mountain goats on the other side of the inlet. There are three trails in the park. Seduction Point Trail is an easy hike that follows the coast, winding back and forth between the woods and the beach. This trail is six miles long one way, and offers great scenery sights and wildlife viewing opportunities. Battery Point Trail is another easy trail along the beach. For those ready for a challe
