Denali National Park Backcountry Lodge at Wonder Lake | Kantishna
As the name implies, Denali Backcountry Lodge is situated deep within Denali's rugged backcountry. Located at the end of 92 Mile Park Road in Kantishna, offering you a complete Denali Park vacation experience - as well as surprising comfort. Most park visitors limit their visit and stay near the developed and crowded Denali park entrance. The more adventurous take one of the grandest drives on earth and stay inside the park. Winding through the Alaska Range, deep into the heart of the Denali park, the "Park Road" offers opportunities to see Denali's famed wildlife: Grizzlies, Caribou, Moose, Dall Sheep, Wolves, and Eagles. And, should the weather smile upon you, above all of it towers Mt. McKinley (Denali) itself, the highest point in North America (20,320 feet). At the very end of the Denali Park road, past Wonder Lake, you'll find a unique enclave in the park known as Kantishna. This area is home to Denali Backcountry Lodge.
