    We absolutely loved the campground/campsite. It is near the wilderness access center, the shuttle busses, showers, ... We also liked the (free) ranger programs at night at the campgrounds amphitheater. Only drawbacks are the noise from the highway and the railroad and the overpriced showers.

    Great place to camp. If you are renting a camper in Anchorage and plan on campfires in Denali, buy your firewood in Anchorage at Lowes. Firewood bundles at Denali are $10 each. Same size bundle at Lowes in Anchorage $5 each.

    We made our reservations about 9 months in advance, and did so on line. You cannot see Denali from the Riley Creek campground; you must either take one of the bus rides into the park, or a flight seeing tour, and even then... More
