We were there in Sep. with the changing of the colors. The tundra was an array of autumn colors. The lodge is friendly, warm, accommodating, etc. The staff was so helpful and warm. The food was yummy. We took hikes, awakened in the middle of the night to watch the northern lights and flew over Mt. Denali at sunset. On... More

It was a REALLY long, dusty ride to get to Backcountry Lodge. In our room we found a broken toilet seat and the big window had a crack running all the way through it. I turned down the bed after a long and tiring day to find that the duvet had smudges of blood on it. Flipped it end-to-end and... More

Off the beaten track this is a wonderful place to visit. The lodge is somewhat "backcountry", no phone no pool , no pets-just nature and relaxation, great views, good food, good service.clean rooms. Nature walks, a mountain bike ride to wonder lake, it is all good.

This lodge is at the end of the line in Kantishna, a 6 hour bus ride from the Denali visitor center, very remote. We were with a tour group and stayed two nights. The cabins are rustic, we had two very comfortable double beds, there is heat, but at night, early September we had very warm weather and rarely used... More

I really enjoyed our stay here! It was very peaceful and relaxing! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful! Yes, it is a little more expensive but 3 meals and the guided hikes, educational classes and walks are included. It was well worth it!

The Denali Backcountry Lodge is literally at the end of the road: Mile 92 of the Denali access road. You can't drive yourself there -- the only choices are chartered plane (which lands at a little airport about a mile away) or a 7-hour ride on a school bus from the park entrance. My wife and I stayed at the... More

It is a one fee covers all (except alcohol and massage). They serve 3 meals a day and activities include nature hikes, lake fishing, history walk, and gold... More

At $530 per person per night, this venue lacks quality in lodging and food. The cabins are all attached to a boardwalk which is very noisy. They awaken all those parties that are leaving that day at 5 AM to catch a 6 AM bus out of the park. Due to the structure of the cabins, they awaken EVERYONE at... More

This place was good considering we were in the middle of the Wilderness. Staff was accommodating. The restaurant attached was terrible and to be avoided if possible. Good food across the road. Very rustic.
