My husband and I loved this location for our wedding! The space is versatile for all wedding styles and decor. The lodge kitchen was very accommodating to our needs, and the Camp staff was friendly and helpful. Let alone the amazing beauty of Denali and the natural setting!!

Everything we dreamed and more...
We loved this magical setting for our special day. The lodge is placed right in full view of Denali, and surrounded by trees. Not only were the staff incredible at attending to our needs, they went above and beyond ensuring our event was special. Would recommend to anyone wanting a secluded, beautiful backdrop to celebrate the start of their marriage!Sent on 07/09/2019
