Riley Creek Campground is great for groups and families looking for both convenience and the rugged beauty of Alaska’s Denali National Park. The campground is conveniently located near the highway, but you might hear some traffic noise. This area is wooded, with some privacy between campsites, and just steps from Riley Creek. You’ll find a general store just a short walk away, where you can pick up any necessities, as well as great hiking and biking trails nearby. Enjoy!

Very large campsite with showers incl. towels for a small fee and a small store. We used this campground as our "base camp" then took the camper bus all the way to Wonder Lake the next day. Try to get a campsite near the river where we didn't hear cars
