First time renting an RV and Savage River was our destination for the first night. I based the selection on the reviews here. We couldn't have picked a better place to camp for two nights. The campground is easy to negotiate even for a first time driver. There's lots of privacy between sites. We had no issues whatsoever. Can't wait... More

Savage River CG is located about 13 miles inside Denali NP. Why best of both worlds? If you have to drive back to the entrance area, for any reason, you can either use your private vehicle or the Free Savage Shuttle bus. This is not an option for other campgrounds out further in the park. Both tents and RVs are... More

$28 per night for our 30 foot RV. 13 miles into the park. Great location. Friendly camp host. Bus stop close right across the road. Short drive to the WAC and the mercantile. It was so peaceful here. Stayed 4 nights - could have stayed longer. Pit and flush toilets in the campground. Short 5 minute walk down to Savage... More

This is absolutely the best place to camp. 13 miles into park near where cars become excluded so very quiet. Fairly small, spaces are spread out (privacy). I went jogging one morning up park road and within 3/4 mile saw bull moose 100 yards off road and then a bit further up - mom and baby moose within 10 yards... More

I really debated on where to stay in Denali and whether or not I should get a reservation. I had a rented RV and decided to make reservations for Savage River CG over both Teklanika and Riley Creek. I liked being in the middle of the park, being able to get the shuttle at the campground whether it was the... More

We went at the end of June, and the Savage river hike was not difficult at all. There are some hills and such, but nothing strenuous. The scenery is nice. We saw a dall sheep and some squirrels, that's about it. Really quiet and peaceful, and not very crowded.

Visiting Denali NP and the Savage River Campground was a pleasure. It is extremely well managed it offers much in the way of programs and gives one the feeling of being transported into another world. We fell in love with this amazing wilderness. The campground was pristine, it has limited amenities of course, so be prepared to be self sufficient.... More

We were very impressed with the park, not so impressed with our campground host. The park service staff were very informative and helpful though. Be very mindful, they take the "Leave no Trace" very seriously. Not only for aesthetic purposes but also for safety. There are a lot of animals in the area and for the benefit of those in... More

We stayed here one night on the way deeper into the park in a tent in June. This campground, like all the ones in Denali, is well kept and has great facilities considering how remote it is. The campground host was sweet, friendly, and very helpful. The Savage River hiking area is close enough to walk there from the campground... More

Quiet, remote, small camp for RV and tents. Beautiful spot with real toilets and that's about it. Savage River area is a great spot 13 miles into Denali with trails nearby, shuttle bus hourly to main entrance area. Tour buses to go further out into Denali, will pick you up at Savage River. Nightly park ranger talks, moose wandering through,... More
