Campground Review | Denali State Park | K’esugi Ken Campground

“Very Nice State Park!”

Our site K'esugi Ken Campground. Denali State Park

Campground Review

This state park is fairly new. The gravel sites are nice and wide with electric hookups. Our site had 30/50 electric which was nice because it was a little warm when we were there so the AC was needed in mid-June 2019. Picnic tables, fire pits at each site plus a tent pad.

K’esugi Ken Campground

K’ensugi Ken is a fairly new campground is about 80 miles south Denali National Park, where you can actually see Denali and the Alaska Mountain ranges from the campground.

We loved this campground, it was not crowded when we were there. It was nice and peaceful but it was the beginning of the season and the park had just opened for the summer. We were even able to see Denali herself one day right from the campground.

We stayed in the RV camp loop for larger RV’s. Sites in this loop will accommodate at least 75-foot RVs, with 5 pull-through sites that will accommodate up to 100-foot RVs.

This State Park has 32 RV campsites, 10 walks up sites. Clean bathrooms, firewood available from the camp host, a new hiking trail to alpine areas plus a network of trails for a range of abilities, and an interpretive center.

There is an overflow parking lot for use when the park is full. Reservations are recommended since this park is very popular with the locals. There is no dump but potable water is available so be sure to dump before coming to this campground.
