Right on the highway just north of the park. Clean, wonderful owners, nice gift shop. Laundry very clean and pleasant as were showers/bathrooms. Full but quiet except for some highway noise which did not bother us....it was cool so windows were closed. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Nice park convenient to Denali Nat'l Park. Very good Wi-Fi. All services worked well. Nice folks in the office. Right off Hwy 3, so some road noise during the day. We would return in the future. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Everything that the previous reviewer said is spot on so I won't bore you with the same information. I will add however that the Wi-Fi is the best I have seen in Alaska. On my last visit to this area, I stayed at the RV park in the commercial area. I may have been convenient, but can't hold a candle to this RV Park. I would definitely stay here again We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here a total of 3 nights. This RV park backs up to a mountain range, so the view is beautiful. Not a whole lot of trees in the park, but the sites are level and wide enough for slides, and there are pull-throughs as well as back-in sites (which are easy to get into and out of). The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the office stocks souvenirs and Denali National Park jackets, sweatshirts and t-shirts that are very reasonably priced. Best of all, they offer dog walking -- twice a day for $10 -- so if you're taking a day-long bus tour in Denali, you don't have to worry about your furry friend. I can't praise this place highly enough - I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it if you're visiting Denali Nat'l Park. They're about 10 minutes drive away and it is definitely the best of any of the campgrounds outside the park. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Although this park is several miles form Denali National Park, but based on our options, it was worth the drive. The office staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The sites were back-in and a little tight, but doable. The front office had very upscale gift items, which was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again.

The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. We stayed at this park because we could not get into Riley Creek Campground, our original plans, in Denali National Park. It is about eight miles from the park entrance. We had seen it on the way to the park and it looked much better than the alternatives in the area. The couple running the park is incredibly nice and helpful. It was an extremely hot day and we did find a site with a little shade, but most sites are in the open. The power was strong and there is basic TV cable. They have Wi-Fi but we could not get it to work for us. Our Verizon Data MiFi worked OK so we did not need the camp Wi-Fi. Our Verizon phone had a strong signal. The site was very small, but not a problem since we have a small motorhome. The park is fine, except for the proximity to the highway. It is right on the very busy highway with lots of noise, even though we had a site further back and with some vegetation. Even with that, if we wanted a full-hookup site near the park we would stay here again. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This park is your basic park -- there is little shade and the sites are close together. When we were there it was not crowded, so we had plenty of room, but when the park gets full it will feel cramped. However, it is very convenient to Denali NP and that is why we stayed. All of the services worked very well, including WIFI. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and they even offer a dog walking service where they will come to your RV and walk your dog twice for $10. This is especially useful when you are taking the bus ride into Denali NP and will be gone all day. All in all we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great spot away from the hustle and bustle of the Park and all the cruise hotels and hubbub, but not so far as you can access what you want. The sites were a bit close together but people were quiet and not much in and out traffic to disturb. The trucks on the road were a bit loud. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers did cost though. The best part of this campground was the trail options that were awesome to walk “spirited” dogs. The staff was very friendly and views quite nice. We would recommend this over all the Denali area campgrounds. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Fifth Wheel.

The folks who run this campground are very nice and helpful. Sites are narrow but plenty long for a 40' motorhome and toad. Utilities worked well and were properly placed. For us this made a great one night stay. The price is high but the closeness to Denali was worth it for us. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Motorhome.

The pull throughs were very tight and I actually backed into ours. The bathrooms were clean and a lot of them. You will need tokens from the store for the showers.The sites were level. The small store had very good items but the staff would not wait on you. The hook-ups were located about mid way on the site. It is a good park to stay in while visiting Denali and can accommodate large rigs. We camped at Denali RV Park & Motel (Privately Owned) in a Fifth Wheel.

Managers were great - personable and helpful. Water good, electric stable, cable OK, WiFi great (a little slow on the up-link but this is common in AK), gravel sites reasonably level (and not the usual "messy" gravel), sewer a little bit "uphill." Restrooms/Showers clean, neat, and 'supplied." Laundry has four new high-efficiency front-load washers - four dryers. "Pay" showers might put some campers off, but we've seen this business model quite often up here - no problem with it. Owner apparently still "investing" in this property, else it would not be in the good shape it's in now. It's about six miles to the Denali Park entrance - five and a half to the commercial stuff near the park (South). Mile and a half North to Healy - 49th State Brewery - try the "Smoked Marzen." Nice tourist area near the Park - but it's nice to camp away from the hubbub and touristy stuff. Based on what we saw elsewhere, we'd DEFINITELY stay at this place again (others were veritable parking lots and trash-bins). Bring mosquito netting - unless there's a breeze, they'll be a bother, even as dry as it is here (as is the case all over AK). Rate reflects the Good Sam discount.

We stayed here 5 nights, and it is the best RV park in the Denali area. Located 8 miles from the park, it is quiet. We were given a pull-thru space. Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are close together, but we put our slides out with no problem. Sites aren't long, but in fairness, Denali has very little flat land, and our site was level. The manager was very nice and gave us information. Hookups worked well, and cable TV and WiFi were excellent. We had 4 bars on our Verizon phones and data worked, too. We didn't hook up to the sewer because it is in an odd place, by the front left tire, and our hose wouldn't reach that far. It is right by the highway, so there is noise, but it didn't bother us. We slept throughout the night with the windows open and didn't awaken once, but then we were really tired. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed 3 nights. Park is typical of many Alaska private parks. With a 40ft MH we had just enough room for slides but we were comfortable after setting up camp. The pull-thru had full hook ups with 50amps and worked great. The WiFi was very good. The staff was very friendly. We were happy with the dog walk service at $10/2 walks during the day. Think the dog was happy also. We were glad we opted for this park after seeing what the other private parks in the area had to offer. We would stay again.

Great Park ! Nice big sites and very quite. The location is far enough from the chaos of Denali, but close enough to come and go easily. Only drawback (like the rest of Alaska) is the hundreds and hundreds of rental Class c coaches that come and go at all hours. There is some road noise, but it was not problematic. Hosts were wonderful to talk with and knew the area. They were there whenever you needed something, but never bothered you. They booked a glacier flight tour for us that saved us a couple hundred dollars from anything we could booked. Only reason for the rating is I compared it to the resorts in lower 48 that we have stayed at. By "Alaska and Canada standards", I would give it an 8.

We stayed here 4 nights and enjoyed the town. This park is typical for most RV Parks on the road. The pull through and/or back-ins are large enough for our 40' and 4 slides. Yes, the room on the left, was tight, but it left plenty of room on the passenger side of the coach to have a table and chairs. The staff was more than helpful. The Internet was perfect and cable TV had a good choice of channels. The price we paid reflect a change in their charge, due to date, as they will be closing mid Sept. We would stay again.
