Q: Can you drive a rental car into Denali National Park or is Denali access only by tour bus?
A: You can only drive a car on the Park Road as far as Savage River, 14 miles into Denali National Park. Further access into the park is by shuttle bus or on a tour bus. We recommend the Kantishna Wilderness Trails tour which travels the full lenghth of the Park Road. The National Park Service does offer a “road lottery” that allows private vehicles on the Park Road during one weekend in September.
