Don’t let a couple unfavorable reviews you read stop you from booking this wonderful Lodge adventure. First of all folks here is a newsflash…Alaska is rugged. If you want the Ritz or the Hilton, don’t visit the state at all. If you want unspoiled scenery, wildlife, pristine parks and nature…this is the place.
That said, we had a great time at Denali Backcountry Lodges. The ride to the Lodge was phenomenal. We saw everything…including Mt. McKinley (which only 20% actually view). The driver was super informative and we learned a lot. The drive took a long time because we saw so much and stopped for many photo opportunities.
The cabins were rugged but again…you are in the middle of a National Park. The food was good but not super. We are not foodies so for us, it was the company and conversation that made the meals so delightful. Again…if you want five star, go elsewhere.
Truly the best part of the Lodge experience was the other “campers” we met and the staff. We met some very interesting and wonderful folks. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Yes, it was expensive but we were able to experience the best way possible. I would recommend this Lodge to those who are willing to step out of their “Hilton” comfort zone and enjoy what Alaska has to offer.More
