Our Denali Hotel
McKinley Chalet Resort

We have made the very difficult decision to close McKinley Chalet Resort until further notice which includes through the summer tourism season. For the health and protection of our team members and guests, we feel this is the best choice to get through the current health pandemic in the safest and most responsible way. More information can be found here.

McKinley Chalet Resort is situated in the heart of the Denali Canyon on the banks of the Nenana River, less than 2 miles from the entrance to Denali National Park. Featuring modern amenities, comfortable accommodations and warm northern hospitality at the edge of the wilderness, the hotel has everything you need for an unforgettable Denali vacation.

Location Details

The name Denali means “High One” in the Athabascan language. The magnificent mountain is 20,320 feet tall and is the highest peak in North America. Seeing the high one will take your breath away and a Tundra Wilderness Tour provides visitors to Alaska the best opportunity for an up-close view.

Denali National Park is six million acres with only one road. The Park is well known for wildlife, including 39 species of mammals, 169 bird species, 14 fish species and one type of amphibian. Visitors to the Park are often on the lookout for “the big five”: bears, moose, wolves, Dall sheep and caribou.
