Clean, well maintained

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

I went to the visitor centre as part of the Nature tour included with my Princess Cruise/Tour. There was a short film to watch which was interesting and then we had a free 10 - 15 minutes to explore the visitors centre. There was a little cafe type thing that didn't have very many options and had a very long... More

Very helpful. Lots of information about the park, history and what to while there. There is also a film you should see. Lots of videos to purchase for remembering when at home again.

We visited the Center in order to get a better understanding of the park and its history. While there I walked the grounds and took pictures of the trees in the area. Bring your wide angle lens and enjoy.

Visitor center seemed fairly new and was nicely done. After passing the front desk and auditorium there was a very nice display of plant and animal life. This is a place to be visited to get a good idea about the park.

We had a nice stop at the visitor center before our Denali Park tour. There are informational displays that tell about the geographical history of the park and there is a nice short film you can watch as well. Definitely a good stop with helpful information on the park, and there is a good eating place and gift/book shop within... More

This is a wonderful place to stop and see for a few. Interactive and very informative. Love how much care they took in building this so beautiful. I do wish they had later hours since the buses return at later times...But if you have the chance, stop in!
