The Camper Shuttle Buses are for campers who are staying at one of six Denali National Park & Preserve Campgrounds. Our Camper Buses are designed for the unique needs of campers. The back seats have been removed to enable additional space to handle backpacks, camping gear, and bicycles. Because fewer seats are available, camper bus seats are reserved for campers and backcountry backpackers only. Camper Bus tickets are valid during campers’ entire stay at the campground. The shuttle may be utilized on a space-available basis to any location in Denali National Park & Preserve.
Those wishing to take a bike into the park for a daytrip or overnight trip may ride on Park Road. Camper Buses can only accommodate two bicycles and these spaces must be reserved in advance.
Passengers are responsible for loading and unloading their own gear. Doyon/Aramark is not responsible for lost or damaged gear.
