Fodor's Review

The legendary, family-owned-and-operated Camp Denali and North Face Lodge both offer stunning views of Mt. McKinley and active learning experiences deep within Denali National Park, at Mile 89 on the park road, past where most of the park buses stop at Wonder Lake. Guests return time and again to both properties–they're like high-end summer camps for adults and families. At Camp Denali, an inholding that predates the formation of the park, guests stay in one of 18 cabins

that include a small wood-burning stove, wall-mounted propane lights, Alaskan artwork, and quilts crafted by members of the staff. Guests share bathing facilities, though each cabin has its own outhouse. Camp Denali is largely run on renewable energy. North Face Lodge is a north country–style inn built on a tundra meadow. It has 15 rooms, each with private bath. The knowledgeable naturalists on staff offer guided outings during the three-, four-, or seven-night stays. Evening programs focus on the natural and cultural history of Denali. Each lodge has its own kitchen and dining room featuring local and organic food, and fresh-baked goods. Rates include round-trip transport to the park entrance on custom buses, all meals, guided activities, and recreation gear such as canoes, mountain bikes, and fishing tackle. The lodge can also arrange flightseeing.
