If I can repeat...See Denali
....We have visited my sister-n-law 4 -5 times in North Pole Alaska, but had never been to Denali. What a mistake...You have to go. Spent 3 days there in Aug. of 08'. (Pictures
)The national park campground next to the visitor center was OK looking. They do have sites saved for larger rigs
(30'+). The key to actually seeing Denali is reserving the earliest shuttle bus possible. It takes about 3-4 hours to get to the 2nd visitor center (Eielson Visitor Center
). I believe the (green) shuttle buses start at 6am. By noon most days the clouds come in. You can drive you cars in as far as the Savage River trail head
. The parking lot is small with limited spaces. So plan ahead....If you have an ?'s about the Fairbanks or North Pole area let me know....
While in Fairbank take a trip on the Riverboat Discovery
. It departs near the Fairbanks airport and travels down the river to a Alaskian Village. Very informative trip, but pricey.
