Denali Sourdough Cabins in Denali National Park

Denali Sourdough Cabins in Denali National Park
The Denali Sourdough Cabins occupy a spruce pine forest just outside the Denali National Park and Reserve in Alaska. They primarily cater to tourists who visit the park in summer and are looking for a middle-of-the-road option between super-pricey resorts and roughing it.


The cabins are at mile 238.8 on the Parks Hwy, about 1 mile from the park's entrance, the visitor's center, and the train station. They are within walking distance of local restaurants, bars, shops and outdoor activities.


The property has 45 fully furnished, heated cabins that come with two double beds or one queen bed. All cabins have private bathrooms.


The property offers flightseeing tours of the national park by plane or helicopter, hiking and camping excursions, fishing trips (although fishing's not great within the park), horseback riding, and river rafting tours. Bicycle rentals are available.


By car, Sourdough is about 5 hours north of Anchorage and 2½ hours south of Fairbanks. You can also take the train from either city.


As of 2009, nightly rates averaged $178 in high season. Sourdough offers free parking, and a free shuttle will take you to the train station, park visitor center, or to the local dining and shopping area.
