Salmon Run Campground in Haines Alaska.

We last visited Salmon Run Campground on a rain soaked morning August 11, 2014 while waiting for our ferry to arrive for the next leg on our journey, Skagway Alaska. We had hoped to speak to the owners but were unable to find anyone around as it was early, 7:30 am and the offices and were yet to open. Our hopes are to return in 2015 and we will report more on this very nice campground in Haines Alaska.

For now we will give you what we know about Salmon Run Campground in Haines Alaska.
