Loved the wood area...nice rooms with a little room off of the bedroom if someone wanted to stay up later.

I felt deeply impressed. Even though it was cloudy and we were not able to see him in full bloom. It has something spiritual. When we took a trip on a skiplane and were circling around him you really can see how big and mighty he is. Good old Denali!

We joined the 30 percent club! Only 3 of 10 people who visit Denali actually get to see the top of McKinley and we did! I strongly recommend doing the flight seeing if possible! Awesome! Inquire where the ground viewing sites are to see it from a distance and hope to get lucky? !

We were so fortunate to see Mount McKinley. It is truly majestic when it comes into view. The first day we were at the lodge it was cloudy and we couldn't see it. We saw some mountains and we were trying to determine if it was "the mountain". The next day it was perfectly sunny and blue skies and you... More

The view is from 75 miles and many spots on way from where you can see the mountain with snow. Liked the bus driver's comments and his knowledge.

Became members of the 30% club twice. On your bucket list should be a flight around the mountain and a landing on a glacier.

Only 30% get to see all of the mountain due to the weather, but if you do, Denali aka mt. McKinley is an impressive site. Hard to put into words, but this mountain is amazing and huge. Even in Alaska where the expansive views sometimes make it hard to realize how big things are Denali stands out as a monster.... More

After 3 years of traveling to Alaska, I must've gone by Mt McKinley a dozen times, but it was always under clouds or fog. I finally got to see it this summer, and it was everything I expected, all the magnificence. I was thrilled. They say Denali may show itself 30 days a year. Some native Alaskans have never seen...

Make sure you go on a clear day (not overcast) or you may not see it. It goes by the name Denali (translates "the high one") in Alaska.
