My family of four stayed at Skyline Lodge in June and would like to thank all the staff for enabling us to experience the real Alaska (sorry for our late review, we had a backlog of work to catch up on after we returned home from travelling). Our kids joined the staff's children (on school holidays) in rolling down the... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Skyline Lodge for two nights. First, the location was unbelievable! Located up on the hill overlooking the valley that the Kantishna Air Taxi flies into (In fact the pilots for the Air Taxi also live on the property!). It's at the very end of the Park Road in a totally unique location,... More

My wife and I spend a few days camping in the park before heading to Skyline lodge. We were planning on ending our trip with a bit more comfort than dried food meals and a sleeping bag, and Skyline Lodge and the staff did not disappoint! We took the camper bus from Wonder Lake and arrived around 5pm. We were... More

Dear Genetics, It sounds like you and "K" had the best of all worlds: a few nights camping in Denali followed by a comfortable bed overlooking a beautiful valley and fantastic home-cooked meals. Well done! And thanks for sharing your experience -- for other campers, this could be a great way to plan a trip. Most importantly, we're pleased that... More

I, my husband, and my daughter rode the camper bus into Denali and to Skyline Lodge. The scenery on the way in was beautiful and made the long ride fly by. We had a stop at Eilson which provided a chance to receive information about the area and it's history. When we arrived at Skyline, Bobby was outside waiting to... More

So glad I found Skyline Lodge when I was planning our Alaska vacation. My husband and I stayed 3 nights Aug. 9-12 and enjoyed every second of our stay. Instead of taking the bus inside the park every day, we wanted to stay as near the end of the road to explore the interior of Denali. However we also didn't... More

We spent two nights at Skyline Lodge after a flight in on KatAir from Anchorage. We had no idea what to expect. The lodge is very eco-conscious, meaning that you conserve power and resources as much as possible. But is surprisingly cozy and hospitable. The staff is great. The location is unmatched and unmatchable. The food was plentiful and delicious.... More

We spent four nights here after flying in via Kantishana Air from Anchorage over Denali on an absolutely gorgeous day! (We lucked out.) The lodge is basically as described on the web site. The rooms are small (we had room #1), with a double bed pushed up against a wall, a dresser, small table by the window looking down toward... More

The 3 of us, including our 14 year old daughter, have enjoyed the most wonderful couple of nights at the Skyline Lodge. The cabin was perfect with a sleeping loft for our daughter.

There are many choices when staying in and around Denali National Park and if you are going to travel this far to experience this gorgeous area then I recommend you stay at Skyline Lodge. Now this is NOT a 5-star, all services catered to, exclusive "spa-experience" type of place. If you are looking for that, this place is definitely not... More
