Savage River Campground is located at mile 13 on the Denali Park Road. It is the smallest of the three vehicle-accessible campgrounds in Denali, with 33 sites available for tent or RV campers. It is open mid-May through mid-September each year.
This campground is near the end of the paved, publicly-accessible portion of the Denali Park Road. You may drive a car or RV to and from the campground any time of the day or night when the campground is open.
If you do not have a vehicle, you may use a free bus called the Savage River Shuttle to travel between this campground and the park entrance. Sightseeing farther into the park, past Savage River, requires purchase of a shuttle bus ticket. A bus stop at the campground entrance is where you can wait for either of these types of buses.
You may make reservations online, through a third-party reservation system. Reservations are possible as early as December 1 of the summer before you wish to visit (e.g., Dec 1, 2015 for a 2016 visit).
