If you are looking for a safari style trip to see the park then this is not the place to stay. There are no facilities or activities for anyone with restricted mobility and the management and most staff totally ignore you if you cannot hike with them. On the long journey - 6 hours - to the lodge we were offered one can of coca-cola and a biscuit not even a bottle of water. Whilst the cabins were satisfactory the food was adequate but bland and served up canteen style with little choice, usually just meat or meat !! On the return journey we were dumped at the rail depot more than 2 hours before the train was due.
It was a very depressing place to stay tempered only by the sight of Mt. Mckinley and the fact that the tundra was in fall colours, if not it would have seemed even worse.
