Founded in 1951, Camp Denali is an authorized National Park Service concessionaire and sole historic operator of educational guided hiking and field trips. This 40-year family owned and operated business retains grandfathered rights to take its guests on active and educational explorations deeper into the park and up to higher elevations offering daily excursions beyond the immediate developed area of other lodges in Kantishna where you gain better wildlife viewing and mountain photographic opportunities. Each day guests choose from a range of naturalist-guided hikes based on your interests and abilities. You can also use the lodge's mountain bikes, go fishing for Grayling, or canoe on Wonder Lake. Evening programs in the lodge are presented by staff naturalists and visiting specialists designed to expand your knowledge of Alaska's natural and cultural heritage. Eighteen log cabins are spaced apart on a ridge, each one strategically placed to offer stunning views of the Denali range. In the true spirit of an Alaskan homestead, each cabin is warmed by a cozy wood stove; there is no running water in the cabins, but a spigot and private outhouse are located right outside your door. Flush toilets and private hot showers with dressing rooms are available in a men's and women's bathhouse near the main lodge just a 3-7 minute walk from the cabins. Enjoy exquisite northwest cuisine and organic vegetables including fresh greens grown in the greenhouse. The bakery is always cooking up fresh breads and tasty treats.
