Teklanika River Campground, “Tek” for short, is shaded by forest and offers privacy between campsites. Much of the surrounding land is brushy and wet, but you can comfortably hike on the flat, gravel surface next to the cascading Tek River. You’ll definitely see some little critters like red squirrels and snowshoe hares, and if you’re lucky, you could even catch a glimpse of a grizzly bear, moose, or caribou!
