    Kendisnii Campground is a 10 site primitive campground along Nebesna Road in Wrangell St. Elias National Park. It is the only real developed campground with sites and picnic tables that is off Nebesna Road. There are two vault toilets that were very clean. The CG is located next to Long Lake, which also has a small boat launch (walk in only, no vehicle access to water). The gravel pads were fairly level and wide enough to park next to the PUP when open, but there generally isn't enough length to stay hooked up and not have the TV out in the road. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. It was very quiet there, and the lake was nice to walk around. There is a small lodge/bar within easy walking distance that sells firewood and serves up great local stories.

    There is no fee for the CG. There is also no potable water available. There are bear-proof food storage containers and bear proof garbage cans, which is nice.

    Nebesna Road is paved until mile 15, and then it is gravel. The CG is at mile marker 30. There is another area to camp that isn't as formal, but it is centered around another vault toilet about 10 miles down the road. It's a little more primitive with no tables, but also more secluded.

    Kendisnii is really the only formal CG in Wrangell St. Elias NP. Which is kind of funny for the nation's largest national park, but there it is. I never got around to taking pictures of the site, unfortunately. The above picture is of a mama moose and her calf taking a swim in the lake next to the CG though.
