Eielson Visitor Center is a wonderful place! Its a modern facility with lots of great displays. There are usually two rangers at the counter to answer questions. The restroom facilities are always clean. Its the only rest stop where bus passengers can refill a water bottle. There is excellent hiking in the area, but expect to do some climbing on almost any hike. Its not unusual to see grizzly bears in the area. There are always arctic ground squirrels in the area so its a great place to get pictures of them. If you're lucky with the weather, the view of Denali is fabulous!
Best bus tour route option for seeing Denali all in one day. You can order your bus tickets online ahead of time or plan to arrive as soon as the park opens to grab your preferred time slot. Great short hike option just behind the visitor center for incredible 360 views.
