A terrific experience in a great national park. Denali is iconic, and this is the way to see it. We did get to see the mountain each of our four days--at least once. The lodge is very well-run. The rooms are fine (if you want a great view, you need to accept the outhouses up at Camp Denali). The staff... More

My wife and I spent three nights at this outstanding lodge in Denali National Park as part of our 16 day Alaska vacation. We do not have enough good things to say about the North Face Lodge. It made our stay in Denali fantastic. The Lodge is one of only four lodges this deep inside the Park. The lodge is... More

North Face Lodge is a magical place. 90 miles or so into Denali and you feel privileged to stay there. The rooms are sparkling clean with comfortable beds and a private bathroom and plenty of hot water for showers. The food is excellent and served in the dining room at communal tables. The outings, as stated in other reviews are... More

If you want to stay in the heart of Denali National Park with - on a good day - stunning views of Mt McKinley, close proximity to Wonder Lake and the beautiful sub-artic tundra you can’t look past Denali North Face Lodge. We spent three nights there and loved it. The North Face shuttle brings people from the train station... More

It helps to understand the setup in Denali to appreciate choices and experiences. 1. Virtually no automobiles are allowed into the Park except for those with special permits. Forget any thoughts of driving around inside the Park. 2. Most lodging is outside the park and uses buses with special permits for day trips into the Park. 3. It is 90... More

My wife and I stayed at the North Face Lodge this August in conjunction with a Denali Photography workshop. The accommodations were Spartan (being on a par with some inexpensive lower 48 motels) but did include in-room bathrooms (a luxury for lodging so far within the Park). What sets the North Face Lodge apart is the wonderful hospitality of the... More

It is so special to stay within Park Denali, and if you prefer to have a toilet en suite, then mortgage your home and make reservations a year ahead of time for North Face Lodge. Yes, it's worth it! The location and staff are incredible. The hikes/outings were fitted to everyone's interests and walking abilities. The food was sooo good.... More

I would rate the North Face Lodge a "10." Set within spectacular Denali National Park, North Face Lodge is an incredible place to stay. Everything, from the drive in through the accommodations to the food and the activities, is so well thought out. And then there is the staff! What a remarkable group of young people. Our "hosts," Jonathan and... More

North Face Lodge sits almost at the end of 92-mile road in Denali National Park. Access is via converted school buses that are driven by Lodge staff who also just happen to be the naturalist guides for the walks and hikes that are at the heart of the experience here. The lodge was the second stop on a high school... More

North Face Lodge is truly one of a kind. The staff treats you like family and are superb in making your visit worthwhile. You will have about one staff person for every two or three guests. Most of the staff have at least masters degrees in the natural sciences. As they guide you around Denali, both their experience and their... More
