Wow, what a beautiful location in Wrangell-St. Elias national park & preserve, I love the isolation of this lodge. Crossing a foot bridge to be picked up by the lodge shuttle. A very unique travel experience. Love the Kennicott Mill nearby. Mt. Blackburn was visible out our room window. It's a long but scenic drive from Anchorage & about 55 miles down a gravel/dirt road was worth it.. Room was extremely clean & surprisingly so was the shared bathroom. Staff was professional & friendly. Meals were first rate in the dining room. Without hesitation I will return to this lodge and have a longer visit. We were lucky enough to catch some very warm weather during our stay.
