This recreation site is on a beach at the end of a 7-mile trail maintained by the City of Skagway. The last 1/4 mile or so is part of the Forest Service picnic site. There are 3 picnic sites with one picnic table each. A single pit toilet is available for all three sites. There is no potable water available, and any water taken from streams should be treated prior to drinking.
This campground is a three mile hike up into the mountain from the city of Skagway. You’ll end up on the shore in the Taiya Inlet. The sites are placed greatly and the view is spectacular, be weary of the wind. The hike is switchbacks for a mile, then small ups and downs until you descend to the shore. Fire pits, buckets for water, and picnic tables are there. The hike is incredible and recommend going on a sunny day after a long rain. You will run into Lower Lake along the way which also has a few camping spots.
This site is mostly about the hike; not many facilities, but not needed. The first few switchbacks were the worst of the hike. You get a nice view of town on the way up, then you can go around the entire lake. There's a picnic table and several small cleared areas to pitch. The locals and seasonal workers flock here to swim on warm days so expect lots of activity if it's warm out. You can continue on the "Lower Loop" which will take you back down to the trailhead, or you can continue up to Upper Lake.
