Denali National Park and Preserve has just one road, called the Denali Park Road, and it is the primary avenue for visitors to see and experience Denali.
The road is 92 miles long, and only the first 15 miles of it are paved. That paved portion, leading from the park entrance to Savage River, is open during the summer for public (non-commercial) vehicles to drive.

Getting to the park is relatively easy, as there is only one highway (Alaska State Route 3, also called the “George Parks Highway”), connecting Anchorage—Denali—Fairbanks.
Up-to-date park operations and visitor center hours are available at www.nps.gov/denali or call (907) 683-9532.

In 1917, Congress created this park for one main reason: to protect Dall sheep. Over time, Congress expanded the park boundaries and added other reasons for its existence, including protection of North America’s tallest mountain, Denali, and a place for wilderness recreation.

Hiking (on and off-trail)
Denali is a vast park (over 6 million acres) but has very few trails. This is intentional; as mentioned above, one reason this park exists is to preserve wilderness recreation, including hiking and backpacking in a trail-less landscape. Some marked trails exist, mainly around the two visitor centers.

Kenai Peninsula

The Kenai Peninsula, only 200 miles south of Anchorage, boasts colorful coastal towns, glacier and wildlife sightseeing, as well as recreational activities including sailing, kayaking, and fishing.

Many RV Parks on the Kenai Peninsula have access to fishing or are located right on the shore. Some RV Parks have fish-cleaning stations, vacuum sealing equipment, freezers, and overnight shipping services for your catches.
