We visited just after this park had opened. There were few people there and the sites were large and clean and well-built. Roads were brand new as were trails. We got one with a great view of Denali when the clouds parted. Can’t remember the...More

Can't wait to go back. Saw a mama moose and her calf, swam in the river (very cold), hiked lots of amazing trails! Plan your routes, pack in and take out what you bring... beautiful!

Visited Denali while on our Princess Land and Cruise tour. Sadly didn't see any wildlife but the beautiful mountains were worth the trip! We took the Natural History Tour. Highly recommend!

Yes and I think they book pretty far ahead of time. There's a limit to how long you can stay. Maybe you will get lucky and find a cancellation.
