Camper Bus

Bus Information

Operating Dates June 1 - September 17, 2020

The Camper Buses are for campers staying past Savage River Campground. 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 bus may be utilized on a space-available basis to any location in Denali National Park & Preserve.
