Where a seasonal worker finds home on the tundra

Situated in the heart of Denali National Park, our remote location defines our community and informs our uniqueness. Camp Denali is two miles past Wonder Lake, near the end of the 92-mile Denali Park Road.

Due to a road closure at mile 43, we are operating as a fly-in lodge until the Park Road reopens. Staff remain onsite for the duration of the season, but have a six-million acre park to explore. Camp Denali is the only lodge inside the park with a view of the Alaska Range on a clear day. 

In our local area, we don't have restaurants, bars, movie theaters, or convenience stores. Camp Denali creates a community that welcomes and appreciates do-it-yourself fun and adventure. The great outdoors usually plays a significant role in staff members' days off. Staff are surrounded by many summers' worth of outdoor adventures and activities—day hikes, overnights with a backcountry camping permit, canoeing on Wonder Lake, fishing, riding bikes, swimming, birding, botanizing, joining a naturalist-guided outing with guests, and more.

Living and working at Camp Denali represents a lifestyle, not just a summer job. We are a community of approximately 30 people, ranging in age from 13 years old to 70 years young. We share our summer home with up to 24 guests at a time from all corners of the country and globe, and we’re always available and happy to help them, no matter the time of day.

Each summer we form a community that places a spectacular guest experience first, while also developing a close-knit, supportive environment for one another. We leave cell phone coverage behind, and use a staff-only, unreliable, sluggish internet connection to get the essentials done for the summer.
