We have scheduled a 6am shuttle to the Eielson Visitor Center for the end of June. We will have a rental car and, we read in a tour book that it was a good idea to have one person drive the car as far into the park as they could and then meet the shuttle bus. The others in the party could save them a seat on the bus.
Is this true? What is the advantage of having a car at the Savage River Check Station? Would there always be available parking for someone who choose to drive?
Thanks for any info!
