Denali State Park Viewpoint
About the best place to see Mt. McKinley from the Parks Highway is far enough away so that your view is not obstructed by the surrounding mountains. The State has set up this turnout so that travelers can photograph the mountain safely. A sod roof bulletin board contains information about the mountains and helps identify the names of the mountains and ice fields one can see from the viewpoint.
The turnout is on the left side when headed north on the Parks Highway. It is located at about mile marker 135 just before Troublesome Creek State Campground.
There are toilets at this turnout.
