Camp Denali and North Face Lodge are two distinct wilderness lodges, both in view of Denali and the Alaska Range, and each located near Wonder Lake and the end of the 95-mile Denali Park road. Both are situated on private, family-owned land, surrounded by close to six million acres of Denali National Park and Preserve.
Both lodges share a common dedication to excellence in natural history interpretation, stewardship, and hospitality. Individually, they offer different platforms from which to conduct your explorations into the park.
Camp Denali is situated on 67 acres of rising terrain, centered on a pond that reflects up to eleven major peaks of the Alaska Range. A hand-hewn log lodge, built by the founders in 1954, still offers up hospitality at the heart of Camp Denali, while guest cabins are set along an ascending ridgeline to take best advantage of the surrounding views. A new dining hall, a natural history resource collection, a modern shower and bathroom facility, and other public spaces radiate out from the lodge. The newer buildings and facilities complement Camp Denali's rich history and reputation as one of the first wilderness lodges in Alaska.
At Camp Denali, lodge accommodations are in well-spaced cabins, appointed with traditional cabin amenities including hand-sewn quilts made by our staff, wood stoves and propane lights. Drinking water comes from a spigot by your door, and may be heated in your cabin for a quiet cup of coffee, tea or for washing up. Camp Denali's meticulously maintained outhouses offer private, convenient facilities, and each guest cabin enjoys clear views of Denali when it's out. The dining hall, lodge, natural history resource collection and a modern bath and shower facility are a three to seven-minute walk from your cabin. Camp Denali sits right at the 2,400 foot tree line, providing access to native tundra and taiga habitats right from your door.
Nearly 60 years after our founding, the availability of good ingredients in Alaska has grown along with our palates. Long gone are the days of tin cans of green beans and corned beef. Today, the plates coming from the kitchen represent not only quality ingredients, but also our pride in creating an essential aspect of your time with us. Wholesome, delicious and attractive—this is the kind of food that we strive to offer throughout your stay.
