Ten of us stayed in one of the group campsites on the nights of Sept. 1 & 2 (left on the 3rd). It was wonderful! It was a bit cloudy and rainy the first few days, then the skies cleared, and we could see Denali. What a gorgeous sight! The information we saw indicated that there were only "drop" toilets--which is true if you mean within 50 feet of the campsite. But there was also another restroom with flush toilets and (very cold) running water only about 100 yard away. We took a "group hike" on the Savage River loop trail in the rain. Despite the weather, we had a great time. We saw some moose and a lynx, as well as lots of birds, but no bears or wolves.

I love this campground. Very big campsites with enough room between other sites. Nice clean bathrooms. camp hosts are very welcoming and offer great suggestions. Some camp hosts you never see and don't feel comfortable going up to their camper for information, they were both actively out of their campsite and walking around talking to everyone. The campsite itself was great. Be bear aware of course and mindful with food.

We stayed at Savage River Campground in June 2018. The campground is beautiful & well-maintained. You can drive out to this campground or take the free shuttle. The campground has clean bathrooms & running water. There are cook/eating shelters to help campers out on rainy days & keep food smells contained. We really appreciated this! As tent campers, it was nice to be able to eat with a cover over our heads. There are also large food storage lockers, which eliminated the need for us to carry a bear cannister in our packs, which was really nice. The huge shining light at this campground was the camp host, Liz. She welcomed us when we arrived, gave us advice on a great spot AND brought us homemade apple crumb cake. She even keeps up an extra tent in her site for weary backpackers who are too wet & cold to throw up their tent. We were floored by her generosity and kindness! We have stayed at many, many campgrounds & have never encountered a more welcoming camp host!

Lovely quiet campsite with everything you need. A mix of tenters and RV's. Some big groups but you don't see or hear them unless you walk by their camp site. Quiet, easy walk to see a view of Denali mountain. (If the clouds aren't in the way) Was an extra treat that a ranger came out and gave a wonderful talk; engaged the kids. Easy walk to get to the bus tours. Just beautiful.

It can snow at Savage Camp as late as mid June or as early as mid September. Be prepared for rain, sleet, snow, wind or smoke anytime. The ground is frozen so be sure to have good padding and adequate warmth if you are in a tent. A sleeping bag rated to 20 degrees means you won’t freeze to death, but you might still be uncomfortably cold. Layers, gloves, sock hat help.
