Camp Denali and North Face Lodge lie in the heart of Denali National Park, beneath the shadow of Mt. McKinley.  Both Camp Denali and North Face Lodge offer traditional accommodations on family-own land with unparalleled views fo Mt. McKinley. Delicious, wholesome meals made with fresh, local ingredients and breads and desserts from our bakery are featured in the dining room.  Daily activities have a strong natural history focus including wildlife observations and hikes led by staff naturalists.  

Camp Denali
Founded in 1951, Camp Denali is Alaska’s original wilderness vacation lodge, which strives to help visitors gain knowledge and appreciation for the natural history of Denali National Park.  Owned and operated by the Cole and Hamm Families since 1975, it is Alaska at its best.  Accommodations at Camp Denali are individual cabins situated along a ridge with commanding views of Mt. McKinley and other major peaks of the Alaska Range.  Each of the 18 cabins (sleeping 1 to 6 people) are furnished with a wood stove, propane lights and hotplate, a water spigot, handcrafted quilts and Alaskan artwork, as well as their own meticulously maintained outhouse.  A modern shower facility is located within a 3-7 minute walk from each cabin.  The natural history resource center, complete with dissecting microscope, herbarium, library and animal artifacts is available for guest use. 

North Face Lodge
The nearby North Face Lodge is located two miles from Wonder Lake and provides traditional accommodations in well-appointed rooms with private bath, down comforters and Alaskan artwork.  Designed with the atmosphere of a comfortable north-country guesthouse, the lodge features a spacious living room with a stone fireplace, dining room, large patio and covered porch—all with beautiful views of Mt. McKinley and other Alaska Range peaks.
Most of the 15 rooms at North Face Lodge are outfitted with two twin beds, electricity, shared veranda, down comforters. A few rooms offering queen beds can be requested. The lodge offers similar opportunity for adventure and guided excursions as Camp Denali.

While Camp Denali & North Face Lodge may not be for everyone, but if you desire an experience away from the fast pace of urban life and you enjoy the camaraderie of kindred spirits, you will not be disappointed. Choose one of these lodges for the entirety of your stay based on your preferences.

Lodge Excursions

Both Camp Denali and North Face Lodge offer guided excursions with a natural history and educational emphasis. Guided hikes and programs are conducted by knowledgeable staff naturalists, and sometimes even guest lecturers. Hikes include searching for wildlife such as wolves, moose, bears, sheep, caribou, nesting birds and wildflowers. Nightly programs focus on various aspects of Denali's natural and cultural history including birds, mammals, wildflowers, tundra ecology, geology, mountaineering, wilderness, and land management. In addition to guided activities, mountain bikes, canoes and fishing equipment are available for guests to use.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
