Great service, great gear, great staff
Aug 2019
Love this place. I loved everything they have in this store. The camping and hiking gear is top quality. They had just what one needs. Really great service. Friendly and helpful. If you need anything while you are Denali for your camping and hiking this is your place.

Pray for good weather
Aug 2018 • Couples
Denali park is beautiful, but only a small few get to see the park in its entity with perfect weather.
You are not allowed to drive the entire park, there's certain parking spots assigned to private vehicles. You then have to pay for a variety of different tours that will take you around the park.
While on the tour they stop for different wild animals.
The drive to some sights are picturesque, to see the different rock formations, mountains and valley.
Lots of ppl told us it rains a lot during the summer months. We had a flight tour cancelled due to the winds and rain.

Oustanding value

Love mountain works! I am a seasonal employee here in Denali and love that I have mountain works to provide the much needed gear for the same price as I can find online. There is no better value in Denali for hiking and camping gear. Truly helpful and informative staff put this place over the top. Makes me feel like I'm visiting the local family gear shop. Thanks mountain works!

Excellent Gear and Service
Jun 2017 • Friends
Rented tent, sleeping pad and camp stove from Denali Mountain Works while camping in Denali National Park. All the employees were extremely knowledgable in helping me pick out the gear that best fit my needs. The equipment was top notch and reasonably priced. The store also has a large selection of camping essentials for sale. Definitely recommend if you are at Denali and need anything related to camping and/or hiking.

Great gear rentals (and advice) a mile from Denali National Park
Jun 2016 • Couples
We rented a tent and sleeping pads to lighten our checked baggage. They don't rent sleeping bags because they can't launder them. We also stocked up on freeze-dried food while we were picking up our gear. Would have rented a bear can, but the staff advised us that the campgrounds all have storage lockers. Would have bought stove fuel, but the staff said they don't bother carrying fuel when staying at the campgrounds because so many travelers like us leave fuel unused fuel behind. They were right on both counts! They also let us return our gear behind the shop when we had to leave before they opened the day we left. Definitely a shop run by people who love what they do.

gear rentals and bear spray "loan".
Jul 2016 • Friends
This is a great outdoor gear shop near Denali National Park. A real gem in the midst of tacky paste diamonds in Glitter Gulch.They rent and sell equipment and have a good selection of quality outdoor clothing. They "loaned" us a can of bear spray for our hike in Denali. That's a great service because you cannot fly commercially with bear spray so we had to leave ours at home. You rarely really need to use it but it can save your life if the need arises.
We left a $45 credit card deposit with them which they cancelled when we returned the spray, unused. Thanks Denali Mountain Works!

Thank you for the kind review! Just to clarify for others, unfortunately, our store is not able to rent Bear Spray. You can purchase it here, and if you aren't sure what to do with it when you leave, we suggest "paying it forward" by passing it along to the next traveler--we're happy to help you do that! In this case, we were most likely out of stock and an employee probably "loaned" their personal bear spray to this traveler, because we have awesome employees! We try to help out however we can, but please know that bear spray rental is not a service we provide.

Denali Mountain Works came through and helped our trip happen
Jun 2016 • Friends
I cannot speak more highly of Denali Mountain Works selection and customer service. We stopped through the store three times during our trip to Denali. We were unable to carry some items on the plane so we picked those up in the store before entering the park (propane for our mini jetboil, bear spray, and some bear bells that we forgot).

In the park, our tent pools snapped. We went to Denali Mountain Works on a long shot that they might be able to help. They were able to find us a replacement set of poles that worked and even let us pitch our tent in the store to see if it would work. Our experience with the products and kindness of the staff were simply top notch. If you are in the area swing by the store for products or some advice on camping in the park or what to see in the park you won't regret it!

Thank you so very much and we hope to one day return the favor!

Denali NP Camping Needs Under One Roof
Jul 2015 • Solo
I couldn't fly with my camping fuel nor bear spray plus had a few items I wanted to rent/buy for my stay in the park.

DMW were fantastic and despite the crappy Cdn:US $ rate right now I really felt like I got a great deal. Struck me as though they want to keep camping & hiking one of those affordable activities.

Obviously I couldn't fly back with the fuel I had left nor the unused bear spray so I donated it back to the store - I was told they often get people just in for day hikes who don't want to commit to purchasing (eapecially the latter, which kind of confused me when it is about your safety but I digress) and they will give them to them for the day. I like to think of it as a nice pay it forward.

Friendly & helpful staff who love the outdoors as much as I do.

Note: I did rent a bear canister as I was led to believe prior to arriving I needed one (not by the store might I add). DMW correctly told me I wouldn't upon learning I wasn't doing backcountry and even offered to refund me that portion of my bill. Total class act! I took the canister anyway for piece of mind (it wasn't expensive to rent either plus enabled me to stash all my food in it & free up some room)
