Loved everything about Wonder Lake area. Beautiful views at every turn, great hiking trails for every level............did I mention the views???? Only bad thing were the mosquitoes. I recommend bringing bug juice (as much as I don't like using it), long sleeved shirt and a head net if you are going to spend a day out here.

We would have just gone as far as the Eyelson Center if we did this again. We went to Wonder Lake and it wasn't worth the extra miles we drove. We tried to eat our lunch here but it was just a mosquito invasion. Also, the bathrooms were a long way from the bus.

We stayed inside Denali National Park, so were able to hike near the lake, heard the loons that were nesting on it, and actually got to see Mount Denali reflected in it. I know there is a campground near it, bring mosquito netting, and repellant!!

This a great location for canoeing (if you are lucky enough to be staying at Camp Denali/North Face Lodge) and viewing Denali on a clear day.

We got lucky the day of "Wonder lake " Bus tour in Denali National Park as Sun was out and it was crystal clear day. It was a ride of life time , 11 hour of trip did not feel boring as we were constantly engaged by sights of wildlife (grizzles, caribou, Mountain sleep ,Moose, etc) and the views are just breathtaking !

Our driver/ guide was excellent with really good narration and spotting wildlife. She mentioned that we had huge advantage of a Sunny - Clear day and leaving at 5:15 AM as Wild Life is active early morning and late in evening.
Tips
- Take enough light -Snacks and food as None of the places in Park has food to purchase .
- Bug spray
- Binoculars , they help a lot to spot the wildlife
