I loved the lodges! Perfect 2 night stay around our backcountry adventure tour. Hot tub was great after a day travelling. Staff really friendly and accommodating. Great bar and restaurant with an amazing choice, big portions and even vegan options. Individual cabins basic but cosy. Shuttle bus to town and to train depot. Would recommend for visitors to Denali national... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the backcountry lodge on a 10 day trip to Alaska. We had read the very mixed trip advisor reviews before we went. A little about us - we are both in our 40s, well traveled and lean towards staying in nicer hotels/resorts (eg: Jumby Bay, Ritz, etc). We have tween children (4)... More

Stop here on our drive/fly adventure for lunch and break. It is nice with the creek and wooden bridge. The lunch was okay nothing to brag about but the area and scenery were nice. They had a small gift shop that was ok again nothing to brag about.

We had a pleasant stay at Backcountry Lodge but if you are interested in hiking and in a rich experience IN Denali National Park, it's crucial to know that the nature experience is VERY different than what you would get at North Face. The Backcountry lodge only has permits to drive into the park as far as Wonder Lake. It's... More

My husband and I had 3 nights at this lodge with friends, We were not looking forward to the long drive in but it ended up a great experience with excellent commentary and seeing lots of wildlife and stunning scenery. The rooms were better than expected in such a remote location and the staff friendly. We loved the guided walks... More

Marvelous experience!!! Mikey, our bus driver, and guide through the park knew how to make the most of every stopping point. Olivia & Sierra guided us through hill & cake and were veritable fonts of knowledge. NPS couldn't have been more accommodating of kids & their interests. Makes me proud to be N American. Thanks to all Denali back lodge... More

The Denali Backcountry Lodge is 'OK' or let me put it like this, these guys have a monopoly being one of four hostels/hotels in the Denali National Park. Yes they offer the basic comfort of life - bed, food, and drink. As one guest put it - welcome to the get to! The housing is just fine and has the... More

This was a trip with my family and my brother and sis-in-law. My family consists of hubby and myself as well as our two remaning teenagers. We only stayed one night since it is so expensive to stay. We arrived at 7pm and had to leave at 6:30 am the next morning, so we were unable to partake of the... More

Very nice, clean accommodations. Staff go out of their way to make the stay & activities one of a kind. Beautiful setting with a mountain stream running right by the cabins. Large screened porch at the lodge overlooks the stream and was a great place to relax after hiking. Hikes and nature talks enhance the Denali experience. Food is absolutely... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the lodge, the meals were all excellent and plenty of food. The creek side cabins were very clean and had a beautiful view, we slept with the window open so we could hear Moose creek at night. We took a few nature hikes and they were interesting as well. On the ride out with... More
