We are an experienced back country paddlers who could not justify the expense of bringing our gear to AK. So knowing our visit to this state would not be complete without going out we researched various outfitters. Spirit Walker totally fulfilled our expectations and then...More

Response from SWE_Alaska | Property representative |
There are no facilities at the camping locations - no bathrooms or showers. You would be camping in an undeveloped setting at the edge of the forest, near the beach. A true, rustic, Alaskan experience!
