This time of year, February, all of the commercial restaurants and other facilities in the general Denali area are shut down, closed, boarded up. The park itself is open to winter visitors and that's for sure. There is little to no incentive for commercial venues to be open until (late) May into (early) September. Hope you have a good visit. I can offer no suggestions as to returning North to Fairbanks. Contact the Alaska Railway for this information. Obviously there are trains going North if there are trains going South. Once a week? Only The Shadow Knows.

From the depot in Anchorage, you can easily get a cab or an Uber driver. If you want to see more, a rental car is helpful. The Aviator hotel is walking distance from the depot and from a rental car location.
