We booked a room a the Denali North Face Lodge thinking that for $3400.00 for a basically 2 1/2 day stay we would be getting a nice place to stay out in the wilderness. First, the ride to the lodge is 90 miles, some of which is over a dirt road cut into the mountains called Polycrome Pass with no... More

There really is nothing that I can add that other reviewers have not already mentioned. North Face Lodge should be on everyone's bucket list. We were glad that we went for a special emphasis weekend. The only down side to it was that we did not have enough time to do everything that we wanted to do. (Ex. we didn't... More

We always like staying in the National Parks and were drawn to Camp Denali/North Face Lodge because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed – in fact, it exceeded our expectations. We ultimately chose the Lodge over Camp Denali because of the in-room bath/showers and were very glad we did. We visited the Camp while we were there... More

This lodge provides for comfortable access to wilderness hiking and other outdoor activities near the boundary between old and new park areas. The staff at the lodge are friendly, courteous, intelligent and knowledgeable. By locating in a remote area, there are necessary restrictions on alcohol, communications, and trash handling. The rooms are clean, well maintained, functional, and small. The lodge... More

We had a wonderful 3 day stay here. The bus trip in was very educational as the driver had a microphone and could explain what we were seeing. Stops were made whenever wildlife was spotted. We had a nice picnic lunch on route to the lodge. We were met with dessert and beverages at the lodge and met John, our... More

Staying at North Face Lodge was a unique experience. Located deep in the park past Wonder Lake, there are more animals than people. Looks out at the north face of Mt. McKinley, the limited number of comfortable rooms (15) are spartan. What makes the experience unique is the outstanding service of the staff and guides. They are committed to the... More

I traveled to North face Lodge with very high expectations. They were exceeded. The things that make North Face Lodge special are the location, the staff, the food and the activities that are offered. After an exciting and eventful ride into the park, I was struck by the beauty and remoteness of the lodge. The meals were excellent. This is... More

On our second trip to Denali we decided we needed to stay in the park for a few days. North Face was the perfect place to stay! We had an awesome bus ride in with sightings of caribou, moose, bear, and dahl sheep. When we got to the lodge there were clouds covering the mountain but around midnight it cleared... More

After my "once in a lifetime" stay here in 1998, I got the chance to return to North Face Lodge again this year. Yes, it is expensive, but considering the price includes all your meals, including all you can eat trail lunches, experienced and knowledgable guides armed with binoculars and spotting scope to see wildlife, hikes at 3 different levels...
