Visitors have been coming to Denali National Park for nearly 100 years. In 1923 the park welcomed its first visitors and they paid $25 per day for lodging and three meals. While staying and exploring this park is a little more expensive today, it’s still an amazing place to visit and a huge draw to the state of Alaska.
For me, visiting Denali National Park was by far the highlight of my entire Alaska vacation. My wife and I hiked on our own and took a park-sponsored tour, and the tour is definitely the way to see much more of the park. After all, it’s difficult to see much of a 6 million acre park by foot.
