A 2-hour drive south-west of Fairbanks will take you over the George Parks Highway to the entrance of Denali National Park, 6 million acres of largely untamed wilderness and a haven for outdoor adventurers.
Three campgrounds cater to motorized traffic and reservations are essential during the busy summer months. Denali Park is accessible by private vehicle only as far as the Savage River bridge. Those venturing further into the Park will need to take a tour bus or the hop-on, hop-off Denali Park Shuttle.
With so much to see and do in Denali Park, plan to spend a few days here. There's ample opportunities for hiking, big views, wildlife viewing and much more. With the road intersecting only a very small part of the Park, the best way to see much more is by taking a flightseeing tour. Options are available for glacier landings - it is definitely the best way to check out the Alaskan Wilderness.
