Tips for Families

Allow at least three nights in the greater Denali NP area; the long trip up and back takes a day, and you'll want to allow kids some free time as you explore. Make sure to bring warm clothing and sturdy shoes, you'll be outside a lot! Bring ALL supplies for babies and young children, as local stores carry only the basics, and even then, not everything you want. From diapers to food, you need to bring it. Take advantage of the Murie Science and Learning Center, near the visitor center (follow the painted tracks on the trail). A great place for a little quiet time, staff there can answer questions about flora and fauna, and are very good with kids. Bring cash!

Tips for Families

Take a full day of food in a soft-sized cooler, including drinks, if you take a bus into the park. NO services for visitors. Allow at least four days of exploration and relaxation; it's a long drive from Anchorage. Consider a train ride south from Fairbanks; the Alaska railroad does a great job of narrating the trip, and the kids might enjoy a little freedom to walk around. Bring a terrain-suitable stroller, or backpack, for little ones. Don't let weather deter you; dress in layers of smart wool, fleece, and rain jackets. And bring gloves and warm hats, too! It's the mountains!
