If you are interested in striking out on your own, we can help you plan independent adventures.
We maintain a dock and five canoes at Wonder Lake for your use. Paddle across the lake to pick blueberries or take a nap in the tundra. Drift in silence into the reflection of Mt. McKinley. Follow the haunting call of a Common Loon in the fog.
The Kantishna air strip is just a few miles down the road and we can assist in arranging flightseeing tours around Mt. McKinley with Kantishna Air Taxi.
Trail and topographic maps, self-guided interpretive booklets and bikes to ride on the park road may help you strike off on your own. We also have fishing gear, walking sticks, daypacks, raingear, and more for you to borrow.
Bring your curiosity to Camp Denali's resource center, with its natural history exhibits, plant, animal and insect collections, resource library and microscope. If quiet relaxation is your ambition, the living room at each lodge contains an extensive library of literature related to Denali, Alaska and the Far North, photography and field guides. Pick out a book, stake out a comfortable seat, and relax by a cheery fire.
