The Auk Village Campground and Auke Recreation Picnic Area is on a beach on the northern shoreline of Auke Bay, and was once a village site for the Auk Tlingit Natives. Often in the summer, porpoises can be seen from the beach as they break the surface of the water. There are 11 camping sites and each campsite has a picnic table and fire ring; most meet accessibility standards. There are water faucets and one accessible vault toilet in the campground. The picnic area is located adjacent to the Auk Village Campground, with 11 picnic sites, 5 have shelters, and one of the shelters is available for reservation. There are 6 vault toilets and several potable drinking water faucets dispersed throughout the area. The shelters and picnic sites are widely spaced from each other. A continuous pathway stretches from one end of the area to the other connecting the picnic areas. The area is a 14 mile drive from downtown Juneau north along Glacier Highway. The area is only one and a half miles north of the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal.
