Besides the wonderful film showing, the rangers gave us a few very good pointers. They advised us of the sled dog demonstration which is something you can do for FREE and so very good. They also told us of the type of tours into Denali park.

While the visitor center is small, it does offer a variety of things for all ages to look at. Could they do more with it, yes -- I think so. But, considering where it is I thought it was fine. My traveling companions and I only traveled a short distance into the park; far enough to get to a location... More

Great center, great staff, great information. If you are going into the park, or just stopping by for a short visit, the visitors' center is a must do. You can get oriented, learn, and plan your visit.
