I stayed at the Lodge [not to be confused with Camp Denali] and it was wonderful. I was there with a "birding" group but we ended up seeing many more "charismatic megafauna" [moose, fox, grizzlies, Dall sheep, caribou] than birds. Besides being in an unforgettably beautiful place, It's worth commenting on the unforgettable staff at the Lodge. They make you...

Stayed here August 6-10 2012. Saw many animals on the 7 hour trip in. It was light until well after 11:00 at night and would be light by 0400 in the morning. Every day we did something different. We were able to do a fly-around Denali in a small plane. That was both exciting and somewhat scary. Saw moose, caribou,...

There are 3 places to stay at "the end of the road" deep in Denali NP. This is the only place where you can stay that is up on a hill and you can see the mountain (Mt McKinley) or as the locals call it, Denali Mountain when the clouds clear. Early morning, on our 2nd day, the mountain was...

You can stay in a cabin ( actually not as remote as i thought they would be) or stay in the beautifully equipped and comfortable lodge run by the nicest most chilled hosts i have had the good fortune to meet. Expensive yes, but worth every penny. Located at the end of the road 90 ish miles into the national...

This lodge, almost at the end of the Denali Park road, offers an amazing experience in the middle of the Denali wilderness. Your trip starts with a 7-hour bus ride from the Denali RR station. It seems insane that the 90-mile ride takes so long, but there are frequent rest and wildlife-viewing stops, as well as a stop for a...

Stay here and hope you get a clear day! Even without seeing the mountains the daily guided hikes and excellent food make North Face Lodge a special place. Staying near the end of the road is an amazing experience. Spend a minimum of 4 days and 7 if you can. For an experience unlike any other, pick North Face Lodge.

North Face Lodge is expensive, but definitely worth it. The costs includes a bus ride into the park (and back) to almost the end of the road, about 6-7 hours, with wild life viewing (we saw moose, bears, caribou, a fox, a marmot, pika and many birds) and lots of information provided along the way; three healthy and delicious meals...

This place is like an awesome camp for adults (or actually anyone). With only 17 rooms, the number of people are limited. The camp picks everyone up from the train depot at Denali in a large comfortable bus. You travel by bus into the lodge (90 miles total), they stop for wild life viewing and they put on an amazing...

We had a wonderful stay at North Face Lodge. The food was very good and the staff terrific in just about every way. We did the three-day visit but wished we could have stayed longer. The bus ride in and out is a long one, but we saw so much wildlife and spectacular scenery that the time went by quickly....

First a little review, there are only 3 properties where you can stay in the park. All 3 are at the end of the 90 mile road into the park. Both Kantishna Road House and Denali Back Country Lodge allow you to come and go on any day you wish and allow you to stay for what ever number of...
