Denali State Park is part of the Denali National Park in Alaska that boasts some extraordinarily beautiful scenery and animals. Campers love that the park has many options for them, including rentable cabins.
While in the park, enjoy hiking in the mountains, boating, fishing, and many other activities such as skiing, mountain climbing, and rafting.
In some areas of the park, motor boats are allowed on the water, while they aren't in other areas, so you will want to check with the specific location before your camping trip.
Dogs are allowed in the park, but they must be leashed. Dogs are allowed to be on the hiking routes, but choose routes carefully so that you can keep your dog safe. Some hiking trails are very steep and could be dangerous for your pooch.
There are all kinds of wild animals that call the park home. Don't be surprised if you spot bears, lynx, coyotes, moose, wolves, foxes, a variety of birds, and other small animals. While these animals are often intriguing, it is important that you respect their habitat and territory, especially during mating season and when there are babies nearby. You may not realize that you are encroaching on the territory of one of these animals, so be very careful. If you have your dog with you when you spot a wild animal, keep them close and try to get away without being noticed.
Since it is part of a National Park, much of Denali State Park is undeveloped, which means that trails and hiking routes may be hard to follow as they aren't clearly marked. Be sure to take extra precautions when going out into the wilderness. Four-wheelers and other all-terrain vehicles are not allowed in the park, and snowmobiles are only allowed when there is 16 inches or more of snow in the park.
