The Wilderness Access Center is where you buy tickets and can meet the buses for your tours through Denali National Park. The building is clean and well kept. The staff is awesome and well informed. There is food for purchase and a coffee shop.

It was a good point to learn about all of the trails and tours of the park. You start off to many of the major trails.

This is the place to go when getting on a bus that goes in the park. The staff is very helpful. The system follows the schedule. It is very organized and the lines move fast enough.
