Our view of the Teklanika River on our first day in Denali National Park.
For our time in Denali National Park, we reserved a campsite at Teklanika River.
This campground is located 29 miles inside the park. Normally, all private vehicles can only drive 11 miles into the park, but having a reservation at Teklanika makes it possible to drive the 29 miles to the campground. Once there, your vehicle must remain parked, and any further travel into the park must take place on a bus.
(above) Here is Michelle leaving our campsite on the way to the shuttle bus that would take us 91 miles into the park. That's our rental SUV behind her. (below) The river passed directly behind our campsite. This is the view of the Teklanika River from the campground.
