Discover Denali National Park, AK

Denali National Park spans more than six million acres of Alaskan, wild country. The park is situated in the south-central part of the state, in a very rural, very rugged region. The nearest community that is inhabited year-round is Healy, which is located around 10 miles northeast of the park boundaries. The much larger towns of Fairbanks and Anchorage are more than 100 miles and close to 250 miles, to the north and south, respectively.

This part of Alaska is forested, rural, and mountainous, so you are likely to find more animals here than people. There is also only one road into Denali National Park, and that is Alaska Route 3 that runs along the park's eastern border. The small towns and communities, where supply refills are available, such as Talkeetna, are found along this route.

Getting Outdoors

Denali National Park is a paradise for those who enjoy the outdoors, so renting an RV here will allow you to enjoy many different recreational activities. Hiking, biking, and fishing are regularly enjoyed when the weather is warm, while winter sports, such as cross-country skiing and dog mushing, allow you to easily see the park sites when the snow flies. Ice fishing can be enjoyed during the winter, as well. Visitors should be aware that snowy conditions may be experienced here at any time of the year, but especially from September through May.

Denali National Park is conveniently open all year long, though due to lack of darkness throughout the summer months, there are two activities that can only be enjoyed during the winter. These are viewing the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, and stargazing. Due to the park's extreme northern latitude, the Aurora is common here, and its remote location makes light pollution from commercialized areas rare.

Another prime activity to enjoy at the national park is to view the varied wildlife that calls the park home. These range from deer and squirrels to more exotic large game animals, such as reindeer, moose, and grizzly bears. Due to the large mammals present in the park, visitors should always be bear (and moose) aware and be respectful of these wild, potentially dangerous animals if they are near. A variety of birds can be seen as well, especially during the summer months.

Camping at Denali National Park

It is a breeze to camp with an RV at Denali National Park. There are several campgrounds within the park itself, as well as several private and national forest campgrounds and RV parks located outside the park boundaries.

Of the campgrounds located inside Denali National Park, only one is open year-round, and only half of the rest of the campgrounds can accommodate RVs. None of these offer hookups though bathrooms are available. Some have flush toilets, others only vault toilets. None of these campsites can fit rigs that are 40 feet long or larger, though pets are allowed at all of them.

Should you have a larger RV, or are looking for a place to stay that offers more amenities, you can look to the private and national forest campgrounds outside the park. These include Denali RV Park and Motel and Riley Creek Campground. Both of these will offer a varying number of amenities. Campers and visitors should expect any national forest site to be more rustic. As there is so much to do here, many people enjoy RV camping at Denali National Park, so it shouldn't be a struggle to locate any services you may be needing.

Exploring the Area

When you book an RV near Denali National Park, you will find so many things to do that no one in the family will be bored. Should you enjoy scenic drives, check out the George Parks Highway, which runs along Route 3 near the park. This route travels through much of the southern, interior portion of the state, from Fairbanks to Anchorage. This is a great way to view this area, as well as the varied terrain and animals found here. National park RV camping will allow you the easiest access to all these locations have to see and enjoy.

Bush planes are commonly used to transport people and goods over Alaska's rugged mountains and across the state's remote lakes, rivers, and stretches of uninhabited land. These vehicles make "flightseeing" possible, which is a unique way to explore the park. Due to its size and the aversive weather conditions that are common in the area, a prime way to view the local mountains, glaciers, and even wildlife, is to get a bird's-eye view of them. Reservations can be made for these types of tours through local vendors.

One of the easiest ways to view the park is by bus. Various tour busses are offered during the summer months, and during the park's busiest times, these are the only vehicles allowed on the roads that venture deep into the park. The tours vary in their cost, based on all they offer. Some are primarily used for transport, to take hikers and campers where they need to go. Others are intended more for sightseeing, and you can choose between narrated and non-narrated options.

When you've been looking for an amazing location that offers scenic views and plenty of things to do, consider camping at Denali National Park. Take a bus tour, view some incredible wildlife, or watch the Northern Lights. Book an RV in Denali Borough, and enjoy your time exploring the Last Frontier.
