We enjoyed our stay at Denali National Park. We tent camped for three nights. We were able to drive our car to the campground, but then couldn't drive it again until we were ready to leave. We did NOT like depending upon the bus service for our transportation. Our first day we had reserved spots on the bus, but the... More

One of a kind experience - true wilderness with RV. Thirty miles into park, minimum three night stay (and you only have one trip out so bring everything you need). Easy to hop the bus further into the park. Walked the banks of the river every day - it changed every time. We saw every animal type during visit, but... More

This campground called TEK for short is for RV's or Tents. You are allowed to dirve to the campground and then back out. No other movement of your vehicle is allowed. We camped in a 37 foot 5th wheel with no problems. Most sites are set up for at least a 30 foot RV and there is a Vault toilets... More

We stayed in site 38 - it was back by the river and the best/most private spot in the campground - IMO. And yes we walked both loops to check them all out. :) It is full of RVs, tents were the minority for sure. Generators are allowed and most of the time the hours were followed. One night the...

The best location for RV camping in Denali. The shuttle bus is easily accessed to take you deeper into the park, but hiking along the Tek River provides ample wildlife viewing opportunities. We enjoyed our five days at Tek and can't wait to return.

The only reason I can't give this place a 5 is the lack of hookups! You are required to stay for a minimum of 3 days but I can't believe anyone would want to stay less than 3 days in Denali! Make your reservations as soon as you can because Tek fills up very quickly in the summer. This is... More

We loved spending 2 nights at Tek ... Gave us the opportunity of being backcountry without the dangers of being remote in the beat country. Being at Tek gives u an opportunity to drive ur vehicle upto mile marker 29 on a gravel road which is the furthest you can go by ur private vehicle. We bought the Tek Pass... More

We have no issues with the CG, TEK was great. We are experienced boondockers so staying 7 days in an RV was no issue. We have solar and if necessary back up generators. We are quite long but had no issue getting a spot although there is the usual butt head who has a tent or a small truck camper... More

This was our first trip in which we rented an RV, and we stayed at Teklanika River campground our 2nd night with the RV. The campground was great, good sized camping spots and privacy between the sites. Plus, this campground is about 29 miles into the park, and gave us access to the Tek bus pass. This meant an hour...

Tek was a great place to stay. You cannot reserve a particular site and just arrive and pick the one you like. There are a few really nice ones close to the river that are pretty private. They all have a table, fire rig and a lot of trees around so you can fix a tarp if youwant. If you... More
