Despite the wind and rain I still enjoyed Wonder Lake and its amazing reflective capabilities. The shuttle was comfortable and the driver excellent.

From a scenery perspective, this is worth 10 stars! Absolutely stunning. The campground is also amazing in that it has a food prep area with a food storage shed to keep smells and goodies localized and away from your tent. Additionally, bathrooms have flush toilets...More

Stay at North Face Lodge then the walk to Wonder Lake is a lovely experience. Animals are close by and hopefully want to show themselves to you.

It requires a box lunch because of the long trip. It was a wonderful trip. We learned a lot and saw 12 bears, 1 moose, Dal sheep.

A hike a Wonder Lake is a lovely tranquil experience. The views of Denali are beautiful from here and the lake provides a reflection of the mountain that takes your breath away.

There is only one bus route. Wonder Lake is about three miles or so from the literal "end of the road", about 90 miles in.
