We stayed two nights at this camp ground and it was extremely peaceful and serene. Ours was campsite 17 facing the great one. Felt like a dream to camp beneath Mt. McKinley by the blueberry shrubs and wonderlake! :) The hostess (Dana) is very nice and helpful and the ranger gave a very fun and informative talk about sounds in... More

This place is heavenly - even if the mountain does not come out. If you go in August, you'll avoid the mosquitoes that plague the area earlier in the year and also be surrounded by delicious wild blueberries. Try to take the first bus out there in the morning to get the best camping spots (mountain facing). There's a very... More

This campground was awesome, first the rangers around were really friendly. The campground are well located (right front Denali mountain), the food lockers and restrooms were clean. Nice hike on the bar trail and incredible pictures of clear Denali when you wake up... Just a dream! That makes me forget about the mosquitos that i have to admit are agressive... More

We camped at Wonder Lake for 1 night on June 21, 2013. As advertised, the views of Denali are as good as you can get without an airplane - and the mosquitoes are intense! We knew that going in so were prepared with head nets (don't even think of going there without one), insect repellant & repellant clothing. Most people... More

Nice camping to spend the night before hiking or checking out other areas of the park. Has restrooms and bear-proof food storage. Depending on how far you walk, lots can be quite private. Offers a great view of McKinley and also is close to Mirror Pond which is absolutely picture-perfect.

We camped at Wonder Lake on our first trip to Denali in late July. Denali gets a bad rap from people who spend all day taking the bus in and out for a day trip and never get to see the mountain. The genious of Wonder Lake is in the ability to really spend some time there. You need two... More

I must admit I was afraid that all the effort wouldn't be worth it. If you're going to Denali you have to come out to this campground! I went in August 2011 with two friends. When we arrived at the campground it was pouring on us without mercy. It was so cloudy. In the morning, I caught pretty good views... More

WOW!! The views we had from our tent of the 12:30am sunset were amazing. And the view was from in the tent since the mosquitoes were out in force (Mid June). I don't mind a few mosquitoes around, but there was literally 15-20 flying around you at all times which is why 90% of the people had mosquito head nets... More

My husband and I recently spend two nights here. While we did not take the family, this would be a nice place for a family trip. Running water and bathrooms plus a covered kitchen prep area with tables make this cushy camping. The views are amazing, if it's clear, and it's a nice place to get away from it all.... More

We packed our tent and sleeping gear in an Army-style duffel bag and our kitchen gear and food into a large cooler (secured closed with a luggage strap and tape) and checked both on the airplane ($25 each) for our trip to Alaska. Whether you get to Denali National Park by rental car (as we did), by train or bus,... More
