Denali State Park is to the east of Denali National Park and runs along the Parks Highway. It has a few campgrounds and a few trails heads and is beautiful. Many people bypass this park and head straight to the Denali National Park. If you do that then you will miss a wonderful state park. We stayed at Byers Campground. As you head north from Denali State Park Byers Campground there is a viewpoint and another campground called Denali State Park Viewpoint North Campground. Here you have a chance of viewing Mt. McKinley. Supposedly it is only visible about 30% of the time due to clouds. Below you can see our view of it when we stopped at the viewpoint.
Campground: Byers Campground
Location: Denali State Park – Alaska
Services: Dry camp
Comments: Another beautiful campground in Alaska. The site was plenty big for 2 rigs and vehicles. Not a soul in the campground. Don’t get this one confused with Denali National Park which is further north.

Yet when we went to Denali National Park we had a terrific view of Mt. McKinley!
A great sign with some great advice!
