OFF THE GRID, AND AWAY FROM THE CROWDS! Caribou Lodge is a fly-in lodge and only accessible by bush plane or helicopter. Just a short flight from the famous little town of Talkeetna. The lodge is nestled in the foothills of the Talkeetna Mountains on a remote lake just southeast of Denali National Park. We are actually closer to DENALI than the park headquarters. There are 2 outhouses, and a shower house for all guests. There is NO indoor plumbing in the guest cabins. The location of the lodge is right at tree line where the Taiga forest gives way to the Alpine tundra. With the lodge sitting on the only privately-owned piece of land within miles and given the fact that the lake is surrounded by undevelopable state land, we do have this beautiful piece of paradise and the lake all to ourse...OFF THE GRID, AND AWAY FROM THE CROWDS!

With the lodge sitting on the only privately-owned piece of land within miles and given the fact that the lake is surrounded by undevelopable state land, we do have this beautiful piece of paradise and the lake all to ourselves.. The lodge offers fantastic views of DENALI and the Alaskan Range to the west and to the east overlooking the lake stands the beautiful Talkeetna Mountains. Wildlife is generally good in the area. Caribou, moose, grizzly bears, sheep, black bears, wolves, coyotes, fox, wolverine, ermine, otters, eagles, short-eared owls, ptarmigan, ducks, loons, Canadian geese, and swans have all been observed from the comfort of the lodge and the cabins. Do keep in mind, it is wild country as it was meant to be. We are NOT located in a national park or a game preserve. Wildflowers abound mid July through early August, berries come ripe about then as well. We know this country and wildlife well and enjoy sharing the experience with a limited number of guests. For many, we are THE highlight of their Alaskan Vacation. We will do our best to be yours. Don't miss us! We are a small and personal operation, some say its like your own 'Denali Park without the crowds', Caribou Lodge offers a relaxed learning experience with an Alaskan wilderness family. Again, we are a fly in lodge and can make all flight arrangements for you if you desire. Please contact us for reservations, space is limited. We hope to see you here!!More

About the neighbourhood
The Lodge sits in a SUPERB location on a remote lake above timberline East of Denali high in the Talkeetna Mountains. It is Alaskan Wilderness at its best. A short flight out of Talkeetna by floatplane in summer and ski-plane in winter. Hiking, backpacking treks, photography, wildlife watching, snowshoeing in winter, northern lights. Learn about life in the wilderness with our family.
How to get there
Most flights to the lodge arrive from Talkeetna and are about 15 minutes long. All flight companies allow free parking while our guests are at the lodge. Talkeetna is a 2.5 hour drive north of Anchorage. If you wish to fly to the lodge from Anchorage we will also help coordinate those flights. That flight is about 1 hour long.
