Sitka, Alaska is located on Baranof Island, along the outer coast of Alaska’s Inside Passage. Starrigavan Campground is located in the Tongass National Forest which is the largest unit in the national forest system, almost 17 million acres. The area abounds in animals and birds and fish, with unsurpassed scenery and hardy people. It’s a place where eagles are commonplace, most roads are deer crossings, and bears use the trails, too. The Tongass is a wild place, where the natural world is a strong presence that nurtures spiritually and materially and demands respect.

Visted Starrigavan Campground lately? We'd love to hear about your adventure. Did you find us useful? Did we forget something? Anything our community should know before heading out to Starrigavan?
Starrigavan Recreation Area is located 7 miles northeast of Sitka at the end of Halibut Point Road and 3/4 mile from the local Alaska Marine Highway Ferry Terminal. There are no roads to Sitka. Access is via the Alaska Marine Highway or Alaska Airlines.
Upon exiting the Ferry Terminal parking lot, turn left. Estuary and Backpackers Loop are the last right hand turn before the end of the highway. Bayside Loop is the last left hand turn before the end of the highway.
From the airport, go across Japonski Bridge to downtown Sitka. Take Halibut Point Road north 7 miles to Starrigavan Recreation Area.
