Where to stay in Denali National Park and Preserve

Six campgrounds sit inside Denali National Park; five are open in summer and one provides camping year-round. A few privately owned wilderness lodges occupy private land within the park. Most visitors stay outside the park in hotels, motels, lodges, inns, and bed and breakfasts. You'll find most of these in the towns of Healy and Cantwell, 17.7 km (11 mi) and 48.3 km (30 mi) south of the park, respectively. Most businesses list their address as a milepost. The park's entrance sits at mile 237 on the highway, with mile markers increasing as you head north.
