"Make sure you visit Denali...." Alaska Favorite Tip by J_lynch

Alaska General: 244 reviews and 272 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: Make sure you visit Denali. It's a huge national park. If you can, call early to reserve a pass to camp at one of the campgrounds inside the park. Better yet, get a backcountry pass and camp/hike inside the park. You have to plan for this however; it's a real wildlife area.
It's amazing to see wildlife in it's natural habitat. Since it is in the natural habit, don't expect to see tons of animals like at a zoo. I know some people are dissapointed when they only see a few animals on the 5 hour bus ride (the only way to see the park is to take one of the parlk's buses).

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
