What to Expect at Wonder LakeThere is no electricity, but potable water is available in the campground.
Campers must use the food storage facilities in the campground for all food and scented items (e.g., toothpaste).
Fires are not permitted at Wonder Lake, so be sure to bring a camp stove for cooking your meals.
Wonder Lake is in a very wet part of the park, and mosquitoes plague the area for much of the summer. A head-net is very useful. A one mile trail leads from the campground to the McKinley River. Hiking off-trail in the area is permitted, though it can be boggy.
Waterfowl can often be seen, either on Wonder Lake or the many ponds and small lakes in the area. Beavers, or evidence of them, can be found as well. Larger animals, like moose and grizzly bears, occasionally pass through the area.
