This legendary campground is as near as most people ever get to Mount McKinley, right in the center of the park. It’s also the deepest wilderness all but a few Americans will ever experience. Bring bug dope, as the mosquitoes are fierce. Some campers wear head nets or netted shirts. Tent sites are separated, but everyone cooks in a central area to avoid attracting bears to individual camps. This is an opportunity to play in a beautiful setting far from man-made things; you can spend many days here, hiking the trail to the McKinley Bar (a braided river bed) and following that level ground as far as you like.
