Camp Denali is a wilderness lodge that offers guests a true Alaskan adventure. It is situated near treeline, providing access to native tundra and boreal forest habitats right from your door. Each of the 19 guest cabins has a picture window view of Denali and offers privacy throughout your stay. The cabins are hand-crafted, well-appointed, and authentic. Quilts made by our staff adorn the beds, a wood stove provides cozy warmth, and propane lamps light the cabins. A short path leads to a private, meticulously maintained outhouse, and sink basin inside allows washing up. Drinking water comes from a spigot just outside and may be heated on your cabin's propane hot plate for a morning coffee or afternoon tea. A three- to seven-minute walk uphill from your cabin leads you to the dining room, a modern shower facility, and our historic log lodge with an inviting wood stove, cozy seating, library, and unparalleled views.

I have stayed at Camp Denali before and hope to be able to stay there again. Everything about my stay was incredible- the surroundings, my cabin, the food, the staff, the guided hikes. I could go on. Staying at Camp Denali is truly a gift. Albeit, one you pay for but it still feels like you are being given something intangible. Something that is difficult to put into words. Thank you Camp Denali.

Of all the ways to experience Denali, it's hard to imagine any surpasses the experience provided by Camp Denali. Just start with its location: a view that rivals any you'll find anywhere in Alaska — a full-on panorama of Denali and the surrounding Alaska Range. (I think Camp Denali may be the only lodge in in Denali, or the Denali area, to have a direct view of Denali itself? If not, it certainly has the most awe-inspiring view!) The staff and culture of the Camp Denali organization also stand out. Everyone is genuine, thoughtful, kind, and deeply connected to Camp Denali. Some staff have been coming back for 20 years (or more?), and some staff are the kids of former staff and it becomes a multi-generational affair, which I think speaks to the strength of community and culture that Camp Denali has cultivated. It's worth noting Camp Denali is family owned and operated, with deep, authentic roots in and community-mindedness with McKinley Village and Healy. In my mind, Camp Denali is Alaska at its best. One thing I'd flag: if you're mosquito adverse, prepare accordingly. Or at least consider the timing of your trip! Overall, I can't imagine a better way to experience Denali National Park!

This was our 3rd trip to Camp Denali and it was wonderful again. The fall colors were truly spectacular. Animals and Denali showed off shamelessly. it was hard to believe at times. The fly in experience was really fun. Don't see how it could have been much better The quality of staff and their training was again excellent. We look forward to a 4th trip one day.

We flew into Camp Denali with good friends for a four day visit. Although it was pricey, we felt it was well worth it for the delicious food, accommodations, and an amazing staff of naturalists who made every outing very special and extremely informative. We lucked out with peak colors for Fall and no mosquitos and of course awesome views of Denali and the Alaskan Range. We would highly recommend a visit to Camp Denali.

Camp Denali exceeded my already high expectations. Comfortable lodging, outstanding food and friendly, knowledgeable staff. So special to be able to get into the back country from your front door and see wildlife in their native environment. The other guests were interesting and a joy to be with. We came this year especially for the fly in service because the park road is closed. A special and beautiful flight and lets you have the entire park to yourself.

Our stay at Camp Denali, was perfect in every way, from the coordination for our flight, at the airstrip south of the park entrance, until we returned via plane 5 days later. Simon and Jenna Hamm are hosts extraordinaire, interacting with guests around the dining tables and sharing the 70 year history of this unique location. The guide staff work especially hard to share their knowledge of Denali National Park, accommodate varying degrees of mobility, and structure the outings for frequent wildlife sightings. The menu reflects the "fine dining" emphasis that has been perfected over the last decades, into a truly wonderful experience around the breakfast and dinner tables.The attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the stay and the ability to adjust based on weather, smoke, rain, speaks to many years of management expertise. We had snow and then warm enough temperatures to take a dip in Nugget Pond after a day out on the tundra. As our world become more "generized", this is an experience to treasure...save your pennies and make it happen.

This is a very special place. The personalized hikes, amazing guides, delicious food, and interesting guests made this one of my favorite vacations ever. It is a very unique way to explore Denali. You truly feel like you have the park to yourself, especially because the road into the park is currently closed.

We had the fortune to spend a week at Camp Denali in Denali National Forest. To say it was spectacular is putting it mildly. Because of a rock slide we had to fly in via a 6 seater Cessna which took off down a gravel runway and flew us through the snow covered saddle of Denali. It was a stunning ride, snow capped mountains against deep blue skies, birdseye view of the massive Muldrow Glacier and Dall sheep perched on the mountain tops. Camp itself is tastefully built, luxurious, sustainable with each cabin having a glorious view of Denali and surrounding mountains. Meals are varied and delicious with good sized portions. Do not fear the outhouses they are cleaner than many bathrooms. The daily adventures are well thought out, and wildlife is very abundant. This is a once in a lifetime adventure and with the road closure it feels like you have the whole park to yourself. Don't miss Camp Denali.

My family and I enjoyed an incredible three days with the warm and knowledgeable owners and staff of Camp Denali Wilderness Lodge, near Wonder Lake in the Kantishna section of the Park. Our days were filled with magical hikes and animal (bear, moose, v caribou, foxes, porcupines, beavers and mountain sheep) and bird (trumpeter swans, loons, ptarmigan, grebes) sightings, where we learned about the history of the Park, its animals, plants and landscape, including many active glaciers. This unique ecosystem is truly the American Serengeti. Our beautiful individual cabins offered unparalleled views of the mighty Denali who peaked through the clouds on several occasions to awe us with it size and majesty. Imagine viewing eleven World Trade Centers on top of each other and you get a sense of both its size and how enormous it is in that spot which itself is only 3,000 feet above sea level. We enjoyed absolutely delightful locally grown foods prepared with masterful expertise by word class chefs, and were enchanted each evening by outside speakers and on premise naturalists who told us about a range of issues including how the Arctic regions can serve as a model for how all of the world can balance conservation with development and economic progress. Thanks so much to the owners Jenna and Simon Hamm, and to Jenna’s parents, the prior owners, Jerry and Wally Cole, who made flying in and out via Denali Air from the Park Entrance to Kantishna airstrip a truly memorable part of the overall experience. I can’t wait to go back. This is a bucket list, once in a lifetime experience.

The people who run Camp Denali really value making you feel welcome and cared for. They are very responsible and maintain the place perfectly. The guides were excellent. The food was interesting and excellent. I read some of the other glowing reviews, and I can't say it better, so I'll just say 100% "ditto"!
