“Cutest Cabins and grounds”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

Spent two nights in Aug 2013. Cabin was really cute, cozy and slept 3 of us just fine. We walked
out back to the beaver ponds as the manager had suggested, didn't see any beavers but nice stroll. The campgrounds here are really nice, but I think only rented out to large groups. They
have a really nice set up with bathrooms, showers and laundry room for campers or cabin renters.
There is a pizza pub, a cafe and a dinner house across the highway from here. Ate at the cafe and pizza pub, both were good. Went up to the dinner house and had cocktails one evening.
It is much more quiet and relaxed than some other places nearby. Easy drive to the park to
catch a shuttle bus into Denali. Highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin farther away from the road.

We chose Carlo Creek Cabins for one night on our recent Denali trip with out of state guests. The cabins are pretty new, comfortable, and nicely decorated in Alaskan decor. The only cabins they had available were "dry" cabins, so we had to use the nearby bath house. As it turned out the bath house is located very close to the cabins and are quite nice, with four private bathrooms, all with showers. It was not an inconvenience at all. It was very quiet there and everyone in our party was pleased with our choice to stay there.

A very pleasant surprise, this place delivers!!

Located by the Carlo Creek, the scenery is simply awesome!! You have here rooms and cabins built with logs but with all the commodities. At the very feet of the mountains of the Denali Park, you are really into the wild here. We heard the wolves at dusk, saw bear poop and prints in the nearby river, saw also tracks of moose and other deers... Never saw though the beaver they assured us were to be found in the same river.

And everything with all the comfort you yearn for after a rough day.

And at night, do yourself a favor and ask Caribou medallions for dinner in the excellent "Perch Restaurant" at the other side of the road!!

Room Tip: The rooms are excellent. Didn't try the cabins, but surely they are, too.

Room is new and clean. It's very close to Denali Park and also has 3 places to eat and drink only crossing the road. So you can leave the car and have a great dinner and some drinks in 5 minutes walk!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Cabin A during our visit to Denali National Park. This was definitely one of the nicest cabins I've seen - nothing glamorous, but I wasn't expecting a mini-fridge and microwave! Everything was clean and comfortable in the cabin. The bathroom facility was super impressive in terms of cleanliness! I enjoyed all the rustic touches like the moose antler door handles and tree stump porch railings. Carlo Creek Lodge is just a short drive away from the Denali entrance. Also, there are several great restaurants just across the street, which made it easy to find food after a long day of hiking in the park!

Room Tip: Cabin A was great. It has one queen bed and one twin bed - perfect for a family.

For the price, you really can't beat this place. I stayed in a very nice log cabin. It is really close to the park entrance (12 miles). Great food across the street. The staff were very helpful, and nice. It was great! Very nice and clean shower/rest room facilities. If I came back to the Denali area, I would definitely stay here again. There is a nice wooded trail by the 'creek', which is more like a river.

We stayed in there new lodge (hotel style) rooms. Very clean, new construction. Reasonably priced with very nice helpful staff. Just down the road from Denali National Park entrance but far enough away from the tourists traps there. I highly recomend
