Loved the Tek campground! Driving further into the park on your own was nice, we saw moose and caribou on the way out. The ranger evening programs were informative and enjoyable. Be sure to buy the Tek pass it is a deal and kids ride free! The campground and restrooms were very clean and well kept. Hike the river in... More

As others have stated, this campground has a minimum stay, and a drive in once, drive out once, policy. It has limited screening between sites. Handles both tents and RVs, but there are better tent only CGs in the park, than this one. (Sanctuary, Igloo, Wonder Lake) Plan ahead, you need to top off tanks, and purchase all supplies before...

We stayed at Tek beacuse it is the furthest place in you can drive with your own vehicle - however, you have to reserve 3+ nights in order to do so. There were a few negaitves about this campground I'll just get out of the way. First, the mosquitoes - they were awful. Be sure to bring plety of bug... More

Yes, it is rustic even for people in the RVs. Heaven forbid...no outlets and water hookups and they won't let you run your generator whenever you want (limited hours for generators) So I am sure some people that can't live without their hookups for 3 days will not like Tek. But all of that is why I LOVE Tek Campground.... More

To get a better experience in Denali and not have to spend so much time shuttling to/from the park entrance, this RV park was a great experience. We got the shuttle tickets and used them to see different parts of the park along the single road. The days were very long go to/from different sites, but well worth it. The... More

First of all, we had a great time in this camp site with our 25 foot RV, we were gone before 7 am and back at 8 pm, so not alot of time spent during the day. You must stay 3 nights and no moving your car or RV, we stayed for 4 nights. It seems lots of people walk... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Denali. Friendly (a bit hovering) camp host, nice crowd, pretty sites and nice riverbed hike nearby.

Loved this campground. Traveled there in a 30 ft RV and had plenty of room. Sites spaced well apart. No hookups and only pit toilets but who cares! You are in Denali! Loved the remoteness of this area. Walked by river which is super close-saw a caribou meander by. We were within yards of it-will never forget that up close... More

Teklanika is the RV camp further into the park. Staying there the trip into the park is 1 hour shorter! From Savage RIver (mile 15 of the Park Road) no private vehicles can go in the park, except if you are staying in Teklanika (mile 29). Take into account that from mile 15 the road is gravel. The minimum stay... More

Like most national park campgrounds this one gets a lot use, but is well located, well laid out and very clean and organized. The vault toilets near our site were literally brand new. This location puts you 29 miles into the park. It's the farthest in you can camp with your own vehicle or RV. It saves you an hour... More
