Near Pelican

Beach camping ­– Camping along the beaches is the first choice for kayakers exploring 22-mile long Lisianski Inlet and the well-protected Lisianski Strait. A bit of local advice: If you want the security of not having a four-legged creature visit your campsite, choose a smaller island to set up for the night. They are usually bear free.

U.S. Forest Service cabins ­– Tongass National Park offers several U.S. Forest Service cabins, most accessible only by boat or charter flight. The two closest to Pelican are at White Sulphur Springs, the Bohemia Basin shelter, and Greentop on Yakobi Island.
