The shadow of Denali National Park’s namesake, the Denali peak (AKA Mount McKinley), looms over this lakeside campground. Wonder Lake Campground is wholly primitive; flush toilets and potable water are only available in the summer when the mosquitos are at their most fierce. The rest of the year, vault toilets and bear boxes are the only amenities available and fires are never allowed. But the views from Wonder Lake Campground are truly unbeatable, from the waterfowl that call the lake home and the moose that occasionally pass through, to North America’s highest peak—so close you feel you can almost reach out and touch it.
