Nice dry quiet campground 15 miles into the park. We preferred this to Riley, due to the noise from the park entrance. Moose and grizzly bears and other wildlife passed through the CG. Has a good view of Mt. Denali when it occasionally emerges. Be careful of the large pull through sites. The curve of the site and the 4x4 timbers along the edges can fool you. I should have backed into mine, rather than pulling in. Wound up moving the 4x4 just to park. (Shhh!) Rate based on Golden Age pass. We camped at Savage River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved the short walk to the river and the nearby hiking trails. Of course, none of the campgrounds in Denali have power or water, but the scenery more than makes up for the inconvenience. We saw beautiful sunsets, and there was almost no sky brightness and plenty of wildlife. We saw snowshoe hairs and a vole near the river. The campsites were closer together than I liked but still private. They had back-in sites for shorter rigs and a series of arc-shaped pull-through slots for longer rigs. Our pull-through was not very level, but it was easy enough to get in and out of. The flush toilets were rustic but clean. Bear-proof trash cans were located at the sites, and there was water available nearby. It was not really wilderness camping, but you did feel as though you were out in the middle of the wild. Our campground host was very friendly and helpful, and a ranger gave a lecture two out of the three nights we were there. The one downside of our location was that it was a long drive to everywhere. The only showers and the dump station were at Denali’s Riley Creek Campground at the bottom of the mountain (15-20 minutes away). The laundry room at Riley Creek looked excellent, but we didn’t use it. We camped at Savage River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Sites of varying size, and levelness. One loop (half?) are pull-through sites and the only ones that would accommodate bigger rigs. About 30 minutes from services: visitor center, store, dump, etc. While because of the smaller number of sites, the 'activity' level may be less than Riley. I really didn't see much of a difference, you're parked in the trees at either. You can catch the shuttle every 30 minutes, after departure, you have 30 minutes to access any services: arrange/change shuttle etc. You might even get cell service at the entrance, can't remember. We camped at Savage River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Difficult to get reservations, but well worth the effort. Outstanding wilderness setting. Site selection is first-come first-served. We arrived early so no problems finding a site for our 29 ft 5th wheel. If you are big and arrive late you could have problems. We camped at Savage River Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
