McKinley Creekside Cabins is situated on Carlo Creek. With it's rushing water, it's the perfect place to relax and enjoy the silent sounds of nature. Small cabins are perfect for a couple days stay. The restaurant on site has some great food ranging from Halibut to a great clam chowder and is quite cheap. This for me was the perfect... More

McKinley Creekside Cabins are an easy couple of hour drive from Anchorage and in a perfect locale to serve as a retreat from the hustle of accommodations closer to the Denali Park entrance. Make sure you take a side trip to Talkeetna on the way - cheesy but worth the diversion. The McKinley Cabins are clean and comfortable with sleep... More

Reading all the “bad” reviews about this place just cracked me up. We stayed there several nights the spring of 2012 and it was one of our favorite spots during our Alaskan adventure. Once you get into the groove that Alaska is um, well a bit “rustic” even when you are paying well over $100 a night, you will be... More

We stayed here on the last leg of our trip and the setting was great! Nice creek running near our cabin and even a moose walking thru the area with her baby at one point!The cabins are pretty basic but very functional. We were there in Mid June and even turned on the heat one night. We ate at the... More

My family of 5 adults and one toddler stayed in one of the 6 person cabins during the end of their season. The cabin was spacious, clean and organized. We were provided with all the usual comforts, and the location was just perfect: by a creekside, with views of nearby mountains, and only 15min from the main entrance to Denali... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in September, 2013. The cabins were small and the bathroom was tiny. The cabins were nicely heated and you can control the temperature as you wish. Basically we had a queen sized bed, 2 wooden chairs and a small table. Not a spa resort, but since we basically were just sleeping here, we didn't need... More

We stayed for 4 nights at the McKinley Creekside Cabins while visiting the Denali area. Clean and comfortable with coffee pot, microwave and mini-frig. Our cabin had a deck overlooking the river with a table and chairs and also deck chairs on the river bank. There was also a community firepit that we had a great time sitting around in... More

We had a great stay- Beautiful setting, friendly and helpful staff, quality restaurant. One of our nights, however, was interrupted at approx. 1:00am by a crowd of screaming and shouting people. This went on for at least two hours and seemed to be right outside the cabin door. I questioned the management as to why they let this go on... More

Our four nights in the small cabin at McKinley Creekside Cabins were not the definition of luxury, but we were there for an outdoors rustic experience, and this was perfect for the purpose. Clean and cozy, with working bathroom fixtures and heaters and warm comfortable beds, the cabin was great for long evenings playing card following dinner in the attached... More

It always puts a smile on our face when guests truly enjoy the property and what we have to offer. We are not luxury cabins but try to provide clean, comfortable cabins, close to the park at reasonable rates for the area and seasonal nature of our business. Glad you enjoyed the cafe and food.

We stayed here for a lovely 3 days.The cabins were small but comfortable and clean. We were blessed with great weather so we only used them for sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food at the Café was very nice indeed. Great location to the park and town and all activities. Definitely recommend it.
