We came in on the tour bus in which we saw several bears and other amazing wildlife. We also thank Denali National Park for keeping this wonderful area wild and not turning it into the crowded Disneyland parks we have formerly been to. We found the rooms to be very comfortable

"Rooms are inclusive of ALL meals. Try to get a room on the water!"
"All room are the same, but by the creek adds a view."
"River view would be great"
"ask for the ones next to the river to listen to the water"
"Ask for creekside, as some cabins seemed to be in the middle of the cluster."
