Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge

Hotel in Copper Center

More intimate than the other Princess lodges, this secluded retreat just off the Richardson Hwy, 14 miles south of Glennallen, is frequented primarily by groups of cruise-line vacationers, but can still offer a comfortable indulgence for DIYers on their way in or out of Wrangell-St Elias National Park.

There are two restaurants, country-lodge furnishings and a handy daily shuttle ($5) to the Copper Center community and national park visitor center. You can find significant discounts if you book online.
