All the cabins were reserved so I rent a tent next to the river, but was good too. I enjoyed all the time, people from here are very kind. Also all the services were good, nice and clean restrooms. I met nice people at the octagon. I recommend this place. Best wishes.

What a great place to stay. This is not a motel or hotel, mostly are cabins and tents but with a Large cabin called the Octagon that houses the stoves, dorm style rooms a dinner table and all the cookware you'll need. We stayed in the Ice worm cabin and was very clean with a perfect view of the stream... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in one of the tents. The welcome was excellent, the octogan was great fun! Showers superb and I just loved the location by the water! Used the kitchen one evening and eat at the pizza reaturant opposite the second which was brilliant! Thank you for an excellent stay. Liz Cobb

I rented a tent in early June because all of the more affordable cabins were taken. I was scared it would be too noisy, too buggy, and too uncomfortable, but I'm pleased to say it was none of these. The tents are next to the river, with one on each side of the community fire pit. Each night people congregated... More

We stayed at the cozy Splatter Rock Cabin. We enjoyed relaxing by the adjacent stream to unwind after a full day of sightseeing at Denali. Shuttle service was efficient, friendly and on time. As a bonus, we didn't encounter many mosquitoes. Much more "authentic" than staying at the Lodge or other places monopolized by the cruise industry. Just a couple... More

Instead of camping with the bears or spending a few hundred dollars per night up near the park entrance, my wife and I (upper 20's) opted for Denali Mountain Morning Hostel. It's about a 15 minute drive up to the park entrance, so it's definitely doable if you're planning to head up for an early morning Shuttle Bus. They also... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Razor cabin and my mom stayed in a creek side tent for three nights. The kitchen was well stocked and the cabin was super cozy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A beautiful setting on a creek. Private cabins, private rooms, hostel beds and wall-tents. 13 miles from the park entrance, but with a free shuttle service. The only way to see Denali on a budget. The hostel is clean, the staff is super-friendly and helpful and we offer discounted prices on local tours and transportation. We are the source for the lowest cost tickets for the Alaska Railroad and sell tickets for The Park Connection Motorcoach. And we offer the lowest prices on nearly all the local tours. We look forward to serving you! ... more   less
