The best part about this campground is you are allowed to drive further in the park than anyone else. It has nice spots, pit toilets very clean. Hiking trails all around. The only bad thing I can say is that you have no view of Denali at all. If Denali is out, you will not know it, for that reason... More

We camped at Tek for 3 nights in a Minnie Winnie RV with friends in another vehicle the same as ours. We were able to find two side by side sites and each was plenty big enough for our large RVs, and had great fire pit and picnic table areas. We didn't need to use the campsite facilities so can't...

We rented an RV for the first time and stayed at the TEK campground, as far as we could go in a private vehicle. We stayed four nights and chose a spot across from the toilets which was a very good move! We were able utilize those facilities most of the time and spare the tanks in the RV! (FYI:... More

We enjoyed our stay at Denali National Park. We tent camped for three nights. We were able to drive our car to the campground, but then couldn't drive it again until we were ready to leave. We did NOT like depending upon the bus service for our transportation. Our first day we had reserved spots on the bus, but the... More

One of a kind experience - true wilderness with RV. Thirty miles into park, minimum three night stay (and you only have one trip out so bring everything you need). Easy to hop the bus further into the park. Walked the banks of the river every day - it changed every time. We saw every animal type during visit, but... More

This campground called TEK for short is for RV's or Tents. You are allowed to dirve to the campground and then back out. No other movement of your vehicle is allowed. We camped in a 37 foot 5th wheel with no problems. Most sites are set up for at least a 30 foot RV and there is a Vault toilets... More

We stayed in site 38 - it was back by the river and the best/most private spot in the campground - IMO. And yes we walked both loops to check them all out. :) It is full of RVs, tents were the minority for sure. Generators are allowed and most of the time the hours were followed. One night the...

The best location for RV camping in Denali. The shuttle bus is easily accessed to take you deeper into the park, but hiking along the Tek River provides ample wildlife viewing opportunities. We enjoyed our five days at Tek and can't wait to return.

The only reason I can't give this place a 5 is the lack of hookups! You are required to stay for a minimum of 3 days but I can't believe anyone would want to stay less than 3 days in Denali! Make your reservations as soon as you can because Tek fills up very quickly in the summer. This is... More

We loved spending 2 nights at Tek ... Gave us the opportunity of being backcountry without the dangers of being remote in the beat country. Being at Tek gives u an opportunity to drive ur vehicle upto mile marker 29 on a gravel road which is the furthest you can go by ur private vehicle. We bought the Tek Pass... More
