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.
The six-room B&B, in a log building, is strictly no-frills, but you’ll find clean, comfortable rooms with one double bed and one twin bed. While they may be basic, you won’t find more affordable lodging in the area—there’s even a continental breakfast. It’s the perfect choice for hardcore fishermen and adventurers who want a warm, clean, affordable room to return to in the evening.
When you stay at the Anchorage Ship Creek RV Park, you’re just a few blocks from the heart of downtown Anchorage, but you also get to hang out right where the locals fish. The famed Ship Creek offers plenty of action for anglers, birders and spectators.
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.
