We stayed for 3 nights (husband and 13 year old son) which is just the right amount of time to do all the things you want to do. The Denali Back Country Lodge is located inside Denali National Park. The bus ride in is 6 hours and is breath taking. Our driver was friendly and full of knowledge which he...

We spent three days and nights at the Lodge. Each day we had fun activities and enjoyed the people we met at meals. The staff was pleasant and cheerful and we had no complaints. The mosquitos were like small helicopters: you could spot them easily and they easily gave way to a swat. I'm sure I got bitten but didn't...

Denali Backcountry Lodge is an excellent place to stay in Denali. The staff is great. There are lots of activities like hikes, wildflower walks, fishing in Wonder Lake, etc. The setting is really pretty. Our cabin was along the creek so we had a really pretty view from the big window. The food was good. The bus ride to the...

Wonderful place and staff even under the pressure of a road closure for a couple of days and all the uncertainty surrounding transportation. Loved the drive in, with naturalist bus drivers. Cabins comfortable. Would recommend to anyone wanting to see the interior of Denali.

I loved the scenery, animal sightings,and friendly people. We flew into Anchorage and bussed up to Danali and really enjoyed it. We visited the backcountry and hiked as well. We took the train to Fairbanks and flew out of there.

This was an excellent trip but a bit expensive. I would suggest to stay over at least 1 night not more than 3. The fishing on the property was poor. I was not able to go else where do to time. We were there in early June and the bugs were not bad.

This lodge is in a beautiful secluded location. The rooms are comfortable but not luxurious. A stay here includes all meals, the interestingly narrated bus ride in and out from the park entrance, delicious food and daily guided or non- guided hiking excursions. The staff also gives talks on nature and the area. There is a good chance of seeing...

My wife and I really enjoyed our trip to the Denali Lodge and our stay there. Yes, the price was quite expensive for the short time we were there but I knew we would probably only do this trip once so we decided to spend the extra monies an stay at the lodge in the back country rather than travel...

One of only 4 lodges that will allow you to fully experience Denali National Park. Great Staff. Many things to do from plane rides, hikes, picking blueberries, yoga, gold panning, biking, and more. Definitely suggest spending a few days here

Nice location, nice rooms, great meals and all the hiking you might want plus air tours if the weather permits. Fishing was available plus vans to take you out to some nice hiking and views of Mt. Denali or at least a portion of it. Had great color.
