Camp Denali sets an example for how all eco-lodges could be run. This place delivers everything that any visitor might need with a minimal footprint. We travelled there with our two kids (aged 8 and 11) and while they were the only children amongst the group, it was an incredible learning experience for all of us, and one that we... More

We had the opportunity to stay in one of the cabins at Camp Denali this summer and it was simply a fantastic experience from the moment we got on the bus at the park entrance to the time we returned to the entrance. To be frank, while we've traveled all over the world, this was the most expensive place on... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights during our two week vacation in Alaska in August 2015. This was by far the highlight of our trip. We got very lucky with our trip as we saw Denali (the mountain) on three separate days. We also saw tons of wildlife on our drive in/out/and around the park. All of... More

Camp Denali includes fascinating contradictions: luxury cabins without running water or a toilet, a remote location with gourmet meals, and a place to escape but be intensely with people. The history is long and fascinating. The dedication to a way of life seems more like a calling than a profession, even a high-level one. Jenna and Simon, the owners, are... More

Camp Danali nothing but magic. From the drive in, the lunch en route to the warm greeting at the end of the ride - wonderful. The cabins executive camping with nothing missing; the meals superlative and the outings/hikes could not have been more enjoyable. The staff are friendly, accommodating and the ones who cook - dazzling. Everyone knows the flora,... More

The Rooms were immaculate, the Location was Great, Food was the Best, Activities were Amazing, our Guides were very knowledgable and the Fall colors were Beautiful ! Did I mention WildLife? Bear, Doll Sheep, Moose, Caribou, did I mention we heard a Wolf howling? Well 99.9% sure.... Would love to return in 5 years for our 50th anniversary.

We spent 4 nights the first week of August. The Mountain was out in spectacular glory except 1 day. There is no way to truly articulate the feelings of sitting on your front porch at midnight while viewing the sunset of this majestic mountain. Each day was a delight of new experiences whether a strenuous hike up the ridge, a... More

Never have I felt so connected to a lodging, to a beloved home, as I did at Camp Denali. For home this is for Jenna and Simon, their children, and the staff who serve guests for the summer. And they include you in their family by sharing this special land in the midst of the park with the Mountain so... More

What a place! What a view! The cabins are simple, immaculate, as are the outhouses. We selected Camp Denali because it is rustic but very comfortable. The common areas (dining room, reading room, shower facility) are all beautifully appointed. The food is excellent - obvious pride by the staff in what they are growing down the road and what they...

My husband and I spent three days at Camp Denali in Denali National Park and cannot speak highly enough of it. Jenna and Simon go to great lengths to continue the tradition of “wilderness joy” that has certainly permeated the lodge throughout its proud history. Preservation, conservation ethic and beauty are the cornerstones of Camp Denali—money and greed are not... More
