“The Trees” as it is referred to locally, is a RV Park and Country Store built, owned and operated by Larry Dunham who has lived in the Southeast Alaska Island Archipelago (Southeast) for over 30 years. With his extensive background in the timber, fishing and construction industries of Southeast, he has a wealth of knowledge of hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, sightseeing and wildlife viewing opportunities, not only locally, but across all Southeast.
The Trees is located at Mile Post 10.2, Mitkof Highway, south of Petersburg, Alaska. When exiting the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal in Petersburg, turn right on Mitkof Highway and follow the scenic Wrangell Narrows for 10 miles to The Trees.
We are located in the heart of the Tongass National Forest with a public dock and boat launch approximately 1 mile away at Papkes Landing, a short distance from world class fishing.
At 18 million acres, the Tongass is the largest temperate rain forest in the world. This rainforest is home to bear, moose, wolves, beaver and black tail deer. Abundant waterfowl includes geese, swans, ducks and countless birds, including eagles and ravens. Fish are plentiful, including all four varieties of Pacific Salmon, Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout and Dolly Varden, as well as numerous other salt water seafood such as Halibut, Cod, Crab, Shrimp and the list goes on!
