Camp Denali and North Face Lodge

IN ALASKA, MANY LODGES OPERATE LIKE TOUR COMPANIES, combining accommodations with adventure activities. Two such properties, located in Denali National Park within a mile of each other, are Camp Denali and North Face Lodge, both owned by Camp Denali (www.campdenali.com).

The camp's accommodations are not for the high-maintenance traveler: Rooms don't have private baths, TVs or even unlimited use of electricity. At North Face Lodge, each of the 15 guest rooms has its own bath. However, Camp Denali has better views of Mount McKinley.

The family-owned operation offers an authentic, backcountry experience to guests of both properties, with such activities as hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and "flightseeing" tours around Mount McKinley.

At both places, a minimum three-night stay is required and arrival and departure dates are fixed (a schedule can be found online). Three-night stays are priced at $1,365 per adult and $1,024 per child. Camp Denali and North Face Lodge pay a 10 percent commission. Agents can call the reservations staff at 907-683-2290. They'll help you distinguish the best location and accommodations for clients.
