To coin the phrase "I Love Not Camping". Yet we wanted to experience deep Denali other than a cramped bus ride. North Face solved all of that! They take care of everything (except BYOB) from the train station pick up to return for 3/4 days. We started with the 90 mile drive to the lodge (no private cars after 15... More

The staff was incredible and more than knowledgeable about the park, wildlife and ecology. I had expected a rustic stay but was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful menus, food and accommodations. The rooms were smaller than most hotels but the park and staff more than made up for it. My hubby and I have different expectations for physical effort and... More

Everything about North Face Lodge is wonderful. We spent 4 nights there the first week in July and the wild flowers were spectacular. The hikes were wonderful and there is one for every level of experience and fitness. The food was delicious, the setting beautiful. The rooms were simple but comfortable. You do have to bring in your own drinks...alcoholic,... More

The staff, facilities, food and activities at North Face Lodge are so good that we didn't even notice that we only had one day of partial sunshine out of the five we spent there (the rest were cold, rain and snow). As one of our naturalists said, "There's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing." And North Face... More

We spent 4 nights at North Face Lodge Aug 17-21. We picked the lodge because we wanted to see a lot of nature and wildlife, and because of the guided hikes which are standouts primarily due the expertise and knowledge of the guides. When booking keep in mind that there are currently are two arrival dates, Mondays and Fridays. Four... More

This was the best overall travel experience I have had to date. The lodge is in a remarkably beautiful setting deep in Denali National Park. The accommodations make one feel at home. The staff of 50+ is the best I have ever encountered. They are like an extended family and treat guests as members of said family. The food is... More

This lodge was the absolute BEST! I cannot begin to tell how wonderful the staff was, from the kitchen chefs who came out every meal to tell about our truly great meals to the hiking guides - everyone was helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We enjoyed every excursion. Bring your own alcohol - they clearly state that on their website but... More

Near the end of the road in Denali National Park you'll find the North Face Lodge. A delightful accommodation without TVs, cell phone service, or internet (they do have a satellite phone for emergency connection to the world). You are after all in the wilderness of Denali. Don't be surprised to see caribou in the immediate area or other wildlife.... More

I read all of the reviews on Camp Denali and North Face Lodge. They were all rated excellent. So I thought I knew what to expect on our stay. To say the least, it was an unbelievable visual and educational vacation. I cannot say enough about this staff. They have fifty experts taking care of seventy-some guests, and they make... More

I found North Face on Trip Advisor and I am so thankful! We planned our 11 day trip around availability at North Face Lodge. It was all we hoped for. We enjoyed the leisurely and informative bus ride into the lodge, and the awesome gourmet picnic dinner. The next day we participated in a moderate hike which was perfect. We... More
