Finnegan's Camp is the first backcountry campground 5mi (8m) on the Chilkoot Trail. It is located near the Taiya River. On clear days you can see the Irene glacier, a hanging glacier, across the river from the campground. In order to camp overnight along the Chilkoot Trail on the U.S. side you must purchase a backcountry permit from the Chilkoot Trail Center in Skagway.
