One of the most iconic summer activities in Alaska is hiking in Denali National Park. This vast and pristine wonderland is a place visitors and many Alaskans journey to each year to see the rolling hills and striking mountains in the interior. The fairy tale campground at Wonder Lake is one of the most stunning parts of the park. Camping here is like spending the night in a picturesque postcard, as beautiful as something from the most wonderful dream.
Wonder Lake Campground
Mile 85 – Denali National Park Road
Denali National Park and Preserve, AK 99501
Wonder Lake is 85 miles down the Denali Park Road, deep into the heart of the protected wild lands. This area is ruled by the animal kingdom and the forces of nature, so be prepared to visit this pristine wilderness and leave no trace.
The fairy tale campground consists of 28 campsites, and is designated for tent only camping. The vibe is peaceful and quiet for communing with nature.
Wonder Lake Campground is closest to Denali, the great mountain that is the central attraction of Denali National Park & Preserve. Only 26 miles away from the mountain, you'll never forget the views from this sacred spot.
Make sure to book a reservation as this beautiful area is a hot spot for summer adventuring. You'll need bus tickets to get to the area as well, so plan in advance for this awesome adventure.
Mosquitos can be fierce and the bear are definitely in the area. Keep food and delicious smelling things like toothpaste in the bear-safe containers provided. If you follow the safety precautions laid out at the visitors center, you'll be fine.
Waking up in this beautiful location will truly make you wonder if you are dreaming. Bring your mountain bikes to explore the tundra and trails, or bike to or from the campground.
It is a 6-hour bus ride to reach the campground, or a slightly quicker drive in your own vehicle if you are permitted, but the journey is all worth it when you taste the Alaskan blueberries you pick in the fresh alpine air.
The incredible beauty of the Wonder Lake Campground will leave you in a daze, wondering if you are in a dream. Don't miss this amazing camping destination in the interior of Alaska, in the shadow of Mount Denali.
