Last time I did the Road Lottery at Denali National Park & Preserve I got shut out of camping. I tried to get a site at Riley Creek or Teklanika and there were none available. I ended up at the hostel which was fine but this year I would really like to camp. So for all of you who make reservations for Teklanika during road lottery how late do you wait to make the reservation? Do you wait until you find out whether or not you got a permit? I am going to Alaska and maybe even Denali whether or not I get a permit but I am thinking I may go to Katmai if not Denali so trying to balance how much money I want to lose if I don't go.
