Instead of staying right near the Park entrance, surrounded more by people and tour buses than wilderness, or deep in the park, where a stay calls for a greater commitment than many travelers can do, Denali Cabins offers an alternative. This collection of 46 cabins set in the woods—at mile 229 on the Parks Highway, and eight miles from the Park Entrance—offers the best of both options, and with plenty of comfort and convenience.
Denali Outdoor Center offers economy cabin rentals and secluded camping on the shores of Otto Lake in Healy, Alaska. Their private 30 acre property is just far enough off the beaten path to find a real sense of Alaskan tranquility. However, they are located only 2 miles south of Healy and 10 miles north of the Denali National Park entrance. So, while the cabins and campsites provide one of the most peaceful experiences and spectacular views outside of the park itself, amenities are merely minutes away.
A complex made up of a hotel, cabins and campground, all with great access to Denali—yet still outside Glitter Gulch. It's six miles south of Denali National Park Visitor Center, at mile post 231.1 on George Parks Highway (Route #3) and next to the Nenana River. The resort has a general store with groceries, laundromat, coin-op showers, firewood, RV filling station, gift shop and a tour desk for flightseeing, raft tours and other activities.
