view web site ›'s insider take:

A tent pitched in the backcountry is the best place to stay in Denali National Park, but if camping's not your thing, try the family-friendly Denali River Cabins & Cedar Lodge Hotel. Located six miles south of the park entrance, it's close enough to be convenient but far enough away to avoid the crazy hustle and bustle of lodging right at the park entrance. On a summer day, those hotels can feel more like Times Square than the Alaskan boonies, and are best avoided. Denali River Cabins & Cedar Lodge's 54 modernized cabins and 48 rooms in the lodge are fairly basic, but you're not here to be inside. Book a cabin with a view of the Nenana as it flows by, and you'll have all the luxury you need. The hotel is owned by Doyon, Limited, one of the Native regional corporations set up by the Native Claims Act; Doyon also runs the Kantishna Roadhouse, an inholding lodge more than a hundred miles into the park. The only way to get that far into Denali is to hike or to travel with this organization—they arrange day trips to places deep in the park where the Park Service won't take you on their buses.—Edward Readicker-Henderson

Closed mid-September through late May.
