Reservations For 2013 Seats On Shuttle Buses And Campgrounds At Denali National Park Now Open


Making plans to visit Denali National Park and Preserve next year? You can make reservations now for a seat on the park shuttle bus or a campsite in four of the Denali's largest campgrounds.

Doyon/ARAMARK Joint Venture, the transportation concessioner for Denali, is accepting advance reservations for the 2013 visitor season by phone, on-line, fax, and mail.

Approximately 65 percent of the shuttle bus seats and 100 percent of the campsites in the Riley Creek, Savage River, Teklanika River, and Wonder Lake campgrounds can be reserved in advance. The remaining tickets are made available for advance or walk-in reservations two days before the travel date. The Riley Creek, Savage River, and Teklanika River Campgrounds are open for tents and RVs, but the Wonder Lake Campground is tents only. Hookups are not available in any of the park's campgrounds.

The shuttle bus system is designed to provide transportation into the heart of Denali National Park and Preserve for visitors who wish to view the park's scenery and wildlife, access campgrounds, go hiking for the day, or take an overnight trip into the park's backcountry. Drivers will answer questions and help visitors spot wildlife. The shuttle bus system will operate from Monday, May 20, through Thursday, September 12, 2013, weather permitting.
