Being surrounded by Tongass Natl Forest, they have amazingly over-funded / under-utilized campsites nearby, or plenty of places to just dispersed-camp. We stumbled on one campsite a few miles south of Wrangell that was free, completely empty, beautiful views from a bluff overlooking the water, and -- I kid you not -- fresh potpourri in the outhouse. We regretted having uncancellable overpriced hotel reservations when we saw that place!
Sound really awesome, Andrew. I had planned to spend more time exploring Alaska this year. However, this trip is to relocate the SM from MT to AK. On the way south in October, I hope I can visit these places ... as have always wanted to!
