It has designated sites, a warming shelter, vault toilets, and bear-proof food caches. Wheelbarrows are available to help transport gear. Stop by the Visitor Information Station near the dock to obtain a free camping permit for the campground.(907) 697-2627The Bartlett Cove Campground is accessible by foot traffic only. Paths through the campground are well-compacted soil and level. There are no wheelchair-accessible outhouses in the campground, but at the nearby Visitor Information Station (1/4 mile), there are two modern restrooms that are fully accessible. Nearby you will find a few short trails, a public dock, campground, and Glacier Bay Lodge. Pathways in Bartlett Cove are not paved, and may have exposed roots and rocks present. While navigable by many new wheelchairs, not all trails meet ADA standards. An exception is the beautiful wooden boardwalk that provides access to a viewing deck overlooking a serene pond. This 1/2-mile section of the Forest Trail is accessible and easy to negotiate.
