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

We stayed here for three nights and wish we had longer. The campground is extremely clean and well maintained. The bathrooms were spotless as well. We stayed here in an RV, which was perfect. You were protected from the elements and did not give up creature comforts, while still far enough into the park to escape the crowds of glitter... More

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...
