The tour to Denali National Park was rather spontanious. People we got to know in Valdez told us about it and we decided to go there although it was a bit far from the route we had in mind.
It took us a 9 hour drive to get there and when we finally arrived in the afternoon we discovered, that you need to book a campground in the park at least one year in advance. We tried 4 campsites more along the road, before we found a space at the Denali Outdoor Center.
We were lucky in several ways, as we wouldn’t have imagined how great the spot was!
