To help preserve the park, private vehicles are only able to travel a short way inside Denali National Park. Additionally, there are ongoing works to the Park Road. As a result, for the time being, visitors will need to stay at the park entrance.

The park entrance is really an area that stretches a few miles along the George Parks Highway and is dotted with a wide variety of accommodation options, making it the base for up to 90 per cent of the park's visitors.
