Denali Park Hotel is located in the small town of Healy, Alaska, just 10 miles north of the park entrance.
The hotel is in close proximity to four restaurants, gas stations and a convenience store. Flightseeing, golfing, hiking, rafting, ATV rides and horse drawn covered wagon tours are all activities that are based out of Healy. There are plenty of adventures to experience near the hotel.
The biggest advantage is the wildlife. Getting away from the congested commercial area increases your chances of seeing animals.
Our grounds are quiet and peaceful and it is common to see moose strolling through the hotel area or hanging out, grazing in the field next to the hotel. Most years a cow moose and her new baby can be seen, some years she has twins! Also be on the lookout for red fox that hang out in the area.
