We stayed 4 nights in Camp Denali in mid July. The weather was overall pretty wet and atypically there was forest fire smoke that limited viewing to less than a hundred yards at times. The camp was well appointed. Food was plenty-full and adequate but nothing spectacular. One of the days the shared communal shower boiler was down so cold... More

Our all-too-short wilderness stay at Camp Denali after traversing Alaska in an RV for three weeks is an experience we will always remember. We will always be grateful for the hospitality and care shown to us. Alaska is a blessed state, rich and diverse in natural and cultural history, including the weather, wherever you go and Camp Denali is deep... More

If you want back to basics, this is the place for you! With no running water, no electricity and no toilets, one would think this is back woods rustic. No way! This is a beautiful facility on the side of a mountain. The bus ride take 8 hours but it's well worth the trip. 1/2 way through the day, the... More

My wife and I visited for six days in June. Everything about our visit was great. The attention to detail so guests feel welcome and cared for is outstanding. Simon and Jenna are wonderful hosts and the staff and guides are excellent. Our cabin was perfect. Food was delicious. Private outhouse was pristine with grand view! Hiking on the tundra... More

This was a real indulgence for us to celebrate my retirement, don't usually spend this kind of money but it was worth it. I can only echo everything everyone else says about the food, the views, the hospitality (incredible attention to detail from the moment we arrived). Don't be lured by the plumbing to go to North Face Lodge instead... More

I spent 3 nights here with my wife and teenage sons. We love the outdoors (2 Eagle Scouts) so the place was perfect for us. The owners and staff are attentive and the camp is incredibly well run and organized. The cabins, lodge and bathhouse were immaculate. They have all of the equipment in case you forget something, poles, packs,... More

Breathtaking views, incredible hospitality and casual comfort all offered within an incredible national park. Do not let the idea of outhouses scare you, this destination should not be missed. Camp Denali is a wonderful venue, family oriented and personally crafted to let every guest get exactly what they want out of staying within this incredible national park.

I'm not going to repeat all of the glowing reviews already written (because they are all absolutely true) but add my two cents as a solo traveler. I have never been made to feel more comfortable and at ease than I was at Camp Denali. It was the perfect blend of having alone time yet able to talk with like-minded... More

Completely agree with the other positive reviews featured here. I'd highlight the personal attention from Jenna and Simon, who operate both lodges. Their involvement with every aspect of the visit, from driving the bus to serving meals, made this a very special experience. The entire staff - and it is large - was friendly, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. If you... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of friends. It was wonderful. The staff of about 50 ( for 70+ guests) are all knowledgeable, friendly and there to make your stay the best possible. The food is excellent with lovely presentation and the bakery is particularly outstanding. All of the naturalists were incredibly knowledgeable and patient. Guests can stay at camp... More
