Teklanika Campground at Denali National Park Alaska

This is definitely a beautiful campground, and it is a worthwhile visit for anyone already visiting Denali National Park generally. There is a minimum three night stay required, but it is worth it to stay put for a while as the scenery is quite nice.


I camped here in my Fifth Wheel. Once you're parked at the campsite, you are not supposed to drive around for the duration of the three night stay.

Many of the sites are spacious enough to accommodate bigger rigs. There are water spigots, and semi flush vault toilets, however, the toilets were not as sparkling clean as one might hope, yet, they aren't terrible either, and being that you're camping out, they are acceptable I would say.

The campground's open season is about the middle of may to the middle of September, depending upon the timing of the seasonal changes.

There's a convenient shuttle bus that you can catch for going further into the park. Purchase a daily bus ticket, and you can use it for the duration of your stay. You can hop on the bus whenever you have the urge to explore.

The camps all have a picnic table, and a fire ring. The Riley Creek Mercantile (located at the entrance of the park road) has free dumps and fresh water fillups, as well as hot showers, a good laundromat, and a reasonably sized store.

There is a host accessible via radio, in the event of an emergency, friendly, made me feel at home more or less.
