A beautiful place to stock up on food and drinks before you head out into the park. The food was tasty and is a decent value for the location. The washrooms were clean and the seating area was a warm comfortable place to hang out while you wait for a tour. Staff are great.

The Denali Visitor Center is about a mile down the road just past the round about. First thing we do is to visit the center to have an information, I think is one important thing to do when in Denali national park. Is a vast park and without any information around the area is hard to know where to start.... More

Before we went on a hike we spent quite some time at the visitors center examining the display and absorbing information. You could gather data on everything the park had to offer. What I thought was interesting was a computer data set that showed pictures of certain places taken with a 50 to 100 years interval. It was clear that... More

This is one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. We not only took the long bus tour but we also did a flightseeing trip. We got to be part of the lucky 30% of those who have seen the mountain top.

Been many years since I visited, but it was clean and well maintained. The surrounding mountains do the rest :)

We spent two days in Denali Nat'l Park and found this visitor's center well equipped, great staff and was the depot for which everyone got their buses for further exploration into the park including day long trips up to Wonder Lake and Eilsen Visitor's Center. I recommend taking the Triple Lakes trail from the center, across the suspension bridge. This... More
