Denali charges an entrance fee. In addition, there are sometimes other costs associated with certain types of reservations or permits (although some activities which require a permit, like backpacking, are free).
What Do I Need to Reserve in Denali?
Advance reservations are recommended for just two specific activities:
- Riding a bus
All other activities in the park either do not require reservations of any kind, or can only be reserved once you are physically here. Bus and campground reservations are explained in more detail, below.
