Just spent a night at Bear Camp---offered by Great Alaskan Adventure Lodge. I can honestly say it was one of my favorite parts of a 3 week visit to Alaska. The 6 passenger airplane flight in was beautiful. The plane lands on the beach right in front of the camp. There were 8 tent/cabins with hardwood floors built on a platform, with twin beds, table, washbasin, and little heater. In the center is the dining tent where meals are served family style. Yes there are outhouses! It is called bear CAMP! There were just 3 couples there when we were there, plus 3 guys working on a Disney documentary. Our guide was fantastic---and very brave. She calmly stood guard as bears passed by just a few yards away, as we madly took pictures! We saw quite a few bears but not as many as those coming a little later will see. The salmon were just beginning to show up. (mid-July) The food was great, the people were great-- I guess that's why they call it Great Alaskan Adventures! Hope to do it again!
