“Very satisfying ”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2017

Overall Rating

Very nice place, state should be congratulated for a very well thought out and constructed campground. Providing electrical hookups to cut down on the running of generators was an outstanding idea. Might be nice to do that at some of the existing sites such as Eklutna.

“The way a campground should be”

Reviewed Jul 02, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a new campground within Denali state park. It has been well planned and beautifully designed and landscaped to a national park standard.

There are 3 A frame type log cabins for rent.

There is a tent only area (10 sites), were the parking is separate from where the tents go. You walk in (about 30 yards) to the tent area. $20/night

There is an RV only area (32 sites), as well. The road is newly paved asphalt with a good mix of pull thru and back-in sites. There are hand pump deep wells for non potable water. No RV dump station. 20, 30, and 50 amp hookups from new pedestals. No potable water. $30/night.

There is a ranger station and ranger led interpretive hikes. There is also an interpretive center. New hiking trails have been blazed to the top of the nearby ridge that give unprecedented views of Denali on good weather days.

Camphost on site, but I never saw them. Check in is automated with a digital payment station that takes credit cards. Right now it is first come, first serve. No reservations.

The demand for campsites like this is high, especially on holidays, which inevitably causes problems, like an overflow of tent campers taking RV spots. Then RV campers decide to camp in the interpretive center and firewood fill and trash dump parking lots. Creates a weird imbalance of wonderment.
