Looks very new. Nice displays. Helpful park rangers. The cafe was nice. A good little bookstore with a nice selection of things to help you remember your visit. An extremely nice way to welcome everyone to Denali. Of course, the park is exceptional. We are lucky to live in a country that has protected this magnificent wilderness for all if... More

On our visit to Denali we spent some time at the visitor center before going to the sled dog training area. Lots to see and do at the center, I wish we had more time to have seen all that was available.

We stopped here as part of our Denali Park Bus Tour. The Center is interesting and this is where the bus into the actual Park picks up. There are trails around the area, a book store, café and more.

Here is where we learned that there are NO TRAILS in Denali...it is a TRUE WILDERNESS park, and if you hike, you better have a compass and all the gear/food/wildlife protection you need to be successful. Details about tours and the Wilderness Activity Center are available. Remember that cars are only allowed 15 miles into the park...if you want to... More

We decided to upgrade our tour to go deeper into the park and have a better chance to see wildlife but the 8 hours in a bus was a little scary. The time went very fast and the bus was surprisingly comfortable. We decided to bring a few extra snacks to supplement the provided box lunch which was a good... More

The newer Visitor Center at DNP is really great. There are so many interpretive signs and lots of information.

We were brought here as part of our tour, but we not allowed enough time to see everything. What a disappointment! No time for museum or movie. Just time to see the dog sled demo which was great.

The Denali Wilderness Preserve is an incredibly vast area, dominated by tundra and stunning landscapes. The Visitor Center provides an extensive array of information to prepare you to make the most of your visit. Knowing what you are about to encounter makes it easier to see what the Preserve has to offer. The Visitor Center accomplishes that goal extremely well... More
