Mount McKinley National Park was created in 1917. In 1978, the Denali National Monument was created, and the two were joined in 1980 to become Denali National Park and Preserve. Today, more than 500,000 people enjoy Denali National Park annually, experiencing the grand vistas of mountains and tundra, and searching for the untamed wildlife. Preservation efforts are paramount in Denali to ensure this sensitive ecosystem endures for generations. And access to the park is restricted to park-approved tours, such as the Denali Backcountry Adventure.
Most visitors to Denali will limit their stay to the Park entrance, and explore the many trails near the Visitors Center. However, adventure seekers and those who are looking for a unique way to experience Denali National Park choose to stay at the Denali Backcountry Lodge. Located within the park’s wilderness boundaries, the property offers visitors the opportunity to explore the backcountry and enjoy unrivaled views, and relax in comfortable accommodations after a day’s adventure.
