FWIW, I took a camping trip to AK in 2014. While Denali NP was full and booked months in advance, I found plenty of camping at Denali State Park, a short distance down the road. Yes, the camping was basic, more of a parking lot/rest area. But it was cheap, I had the same view of the same mountain, and it was available when I really needed it! No hookups, really didn't need them as AK weather in the summer is mild.
I believe I camped at Denali View North, not sure.
