Denali Bus Depot

Located at Mile 0.5 on the park's sole road, the Denali Bus Depot is where you can purchase bus tickets and arrange to stay in a park campground.

All non-narrated buses (transits, campers) depart from this building, as well as some of the narrated tour buses.

This building also houses a small gift shop, a coffee stand, and an information desk.

The Denali Bus Depot is operated by our concessioner, Doyon/ARAMARK Joint Venture.

Dates and Hours of Operation

This facility is open each year from May 20 to mid-September. For most of the summer, it is open 5 am to 7 pm daily for bus tickets, bus departures, and coffee. Hours may vary during shoulder seasons.

If you arrive after 7 pm and need to check into a campground or pick up bus tickets, you can do so until 11 pm at the Riley Creek Mercantile, located in Riley Creek Campground.
