Lonely Planet review

The former McKinely Village Lodge underwent a rebranding in 2014, but the log-cabin-style complex is still a fine place to enjoy a deckside drink overlooking the Nenana River. Rooms sport a liberal use of wood, but overall it's a generic-looking place with online deals making it much more attractive at times.

The lodge runs a courtesy shuttle to the Denali Visitor Center, WAC and Canyon. It’s free for guests and $5 for everyone else.

Our independent authors have visited Denali Park Village and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in George Parks Highway.
