“one of North America's most beautiful regions”
Denali State Park is an integral part of one of North America's most spectacularly beautiful regions. The park's 325,240 acres, almost one-half the size of Rhode Island, provide the visitor with a great variety of recreational opportunities, ranging from roadside camping to wilderness exploration. Mt. McKinley from Viewpoint South The park is about 100 air miles north of Anchorage and is divided roughly in half by the George Parks Highway, the major road link between Anchorage and Fairbanks. Situated between the Talkeetna Mountains to the east and the Alaska Range to the west, the landscape varies from meandering lowland streams to alpine tundra. Dominating this diverse terrain are Curry and Kesugi Ridges, a 35 mile-long north/south alpine ridge, the backbone of the eastern half of the park.
Wonderful place to visit. You will need a full day here. We took the park bus and they stopped along the way and told you what you were seeing. The tour busses told me that this wouldn't happen unless I booked them. Glad I didn't believe them as we saved a lot of $. If you have a National Parks pass they will take a few $ off your bus ride also.
