We stayed here 2 nights in the lodge part. Our goal was to be close to the denali park entrance, and this place is withing 15 miles of it. There are hotels closer, but they are a lot more expensive. This location had 2 types of accommodations. There were actual cabins spread out on the grounds. They were more space...

We stayed in our cozy cabin for 1 night. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. We had a short walk to the bath house, which had private bathrooms with toilets and showers. Everything was very clean! Our only concern was the lock on the cabin door, he huge padlock was great for locking the cabin when we were out,...

First things first - Denali National Park, Denali Village and Carlo Creek areas are far from anywhere, 200+ miles from Anchorage and Fairbanks. So, everything here is very expensive. Gasoline isn't available for around 15 miles around and no grocery store was in sight. Carlo Creek Lodge is located on the Carlo Creek and they have a few "rooms" and...

We stayed 3 nights in one of the rooms not in a cabin. Only 10 minutes away from Denali nationalpark! It was a small room with only a sink in the Kitchenette and no sink in the bathroom.... Kind of strange but ok. Unfortunately there was no hot water in the morning... There was free wifi and it was fast...

It's not a bad place to stay if you are looking to haunt have a one or two night stay to be near the park. But otherwise not a place to be. The cabins are tiny and minimal amenities and some don't even have a bathroom in it. The views however are beautiful with a great creek in your backyard...

A bit more like camping in a cabin but quaint. We stayed in cabin 3. Bathroom very small, ok for us but if you are a more average to large person this may be a tight fit. Pretty clean. Bed a bit saggy. Microwave and refrigerator were clean. The creek noise was enjoyable. If you need wifi check with the...

I stayed in an actual log cabin which was very rustic. Our guide stayed in one that even had a tree growing on the soil covered roof. Beds were comfortable and clean. Some cabins have ensuite but ours had separate toilet and show blocks that were just 20 feet away so no problem at all. Location is a little out...

We stayed here for three nights and we loved it! The property is well laid out and the views of the mountains and creek are fantastic. Across the highway are three restaurants. There are moose footprints everywhere! These are not fancy accomadations but seriously you are out exploring the area and Denali NP so it is perfect for sleeping. Also...

Our family of 4 (including 2 teenagers 19 & 16) stayed in Cabin #5 for 2 nights. I picked Carlo Creek Lodge because it had 2 queen beds and a twin bed (PERFECT for our family!) and I wanted to be close to the park without driving further north. I was worried about what our food choices would be staying...

We have stayed here twice while visiting Denali Park and Preserve. The cabins are cozy and simple, fridge and microwave in each one. The shower house is very clean and nice. The staff are welcoming and warm, very helpful with information and check in was a breeze! Highly recommend this very affordable place to stay!
