As other reviews have stated, yes I also thought that staying at the Lodge with the meal plan was expensive. However, when you get there you realise why. You really are in the middle of the wilderness where it is very hard to get supplies to ut WOW it is so beautiful that I would recommend going without hesitation! We...

Aug 2012 my husband and I visited Kennicott and stayed at the annex. It was perfect, food was excellent as was the service. My husband had terminal cancer but wanted to hike the last morning. We took an easy route but he was unable to make it back. A ranger happened to pass by and the Forest Service had an...

This was a very pleasant stay. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Shared bathrooms was not bad since it was not crowded when I stayed. Overall a great place. It is the only place in Kennicott.

Kennicott itself in my view is a must for an Alaskan trip. The combination of the glaciers,mountains plus the abandoned mining lodge is like nothing else I have ever seen. Yes it's a long way - we drove from anchorage which was about 8 hours including two over the gravel McCarthy road where you can average 30mph, but its well...

The room was clean and cute with a great view, but you pay for it. We misjudged driving distances and got hit with a $50 late fee for arriving after 10 p.m. When we arrived, no one told us to wait at the foot bridge, so we sat in the parking lot 1/4 mile away for 45 minutes waiting for...

Made the drive on the much-improved McCarthy road with my family. Brought 3 spare tires because of the horror stories I've heard, but it's obvious the state has put a lot of time and money into this road. Averaged 30 mph and got there in 2 hours. Free parking at the first parking lot on the left (there's a sign...

This place was AMAZING. I've always wanted to visit St. Elias Wrangell Park, and we just booked here because it was at the end of McCarthy road. I wasn't expecting much....so I was blown away by how beautiful it was. Plus, the food was extremely good. I love the family style dinners. No decisions to be made, just eat what...

This lodge will take your breath away. The staff come from all over the USA and world. They are all so happy to be working there and as a result make you feel like you just got home. The scenery, hiking, food and accommodations are a must see trip of a lifetime,

Kennicot Glacier Lodge is definitely worth a visit. It is not luxurious, but has a lot of charm. The rooms are comfortable, clean and with a fantastic view of the glacier. The old copper mine and the surrounding buildings are very interesting – and a hike to and on the glacier is a very good experience.

Me and my wife stayed in room#2 of Main lodge for 2 nights in July 2013 and found the experience to be less than average. There were more negatives than the positives for us here...

Thank you for visiting Kennicott Glacier Lodge. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations. Kennicott Glacier Lodge is a remote, wilderness lodge and because the Main Lodge is a replica of an original mining era building, those rooms are smaller than typical hotel rooms and they have shared bathrooms. All of the rooms in the South...
