Savage campground a few nights middle of august: wildlife ?

Before our reservation in Tek campground for 5 nights, we will be staying 2 nights at savage campground and want to drive a few times the accessible part of the road. Where would be the best parts of the road to see wildlife early in the morning? Any advise for that section of the park for best wildlife viewing? Looking forward to our once in a lifetime visit.

Mile 9 has a kettle pond where moose frequent & that pull-off is a view of Denali if out.

Mile 15 has the parking lot & a walk out on the bridge with binoculars to scope for wildlife that frequent the Savage River drainage early morning. We have on several occasions seen lynx, herds of caribou, ptarmigan, snowshoe hare down there on the Savage campground side of the bridge & dall sheep on the cliffs above to the north. We have seen bear in the distance.

There is also the sweet Savage River loop trail with marmot potential back by the bridge in the rocks.

Anywhere along the first 15 miles could be moose or anything!
