Lonely Planet review
Verging on legendary, Camp Denali has been the gold standard among Kantishna lodges for the last half-century. Spread across the ridgeline, the camp's simple, comfortable cabins elegantly complement the backcountry experience while minimizing impact on the natural world.
Think of it as luxury camping, with gourmet meals, guided hikes, killer views of Mt McKinley, and staff so devoted to Denali that you'll come away feeling like the beneficiary of a precious gift. This super high-end wilderness camp is the only place within the park's holdings where you can actually stay in a lodge. You can only arrive or depart on Mondays or Fridays, so you'll need to plan accordingly.
