Bare Necessities

Camp Run-A-Muck is located in the ghost town of Hyder, Alaska. It is in the rainforest so surroundings are mountains and lush green trees and plants. The main attraction in Hyder is the bear viewing platform where brown bears and black bears (among other wildlife) gather for the salmon run in late summer/early fall. Black bears are commonly seen in and around town including the campground. Most brown bears stay further away near the bear viewing area a few miles up the road. This campground does have a laundry, toilets (2), and showers (2). It is truly the bare necessities here but everything you need if you come prepared to stay a few nights in this ghost town.
