This family-owned lodge is perfect for travelers on a budget. It offers clean and cozy handcrafted log cabins, including one that is ideal for a family of five or six. It contains two double beds, a set of twin bunk beds, a private bathroom and a full kitchen that includes a refrigerator, microwave, oven, stove, utensils and cookware. Plus, it has the cutest wooden swing for the kids to play on. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi and a gift shop. If you really want to save money, there are cabins available with a shared bathhouse. A short walk down the hill from your cabin are two recommended restaurants, the McKinley Creekside Cafe and Panorama Pizza Pub. There are other restaurants and stores within a few miles.

Carlo Creek Lodge is located on 14 acres of wooded land along Carlo Creek just off the Parks Highway. The Denali National Park Visitor Center is 14 miles to the north, easily reached on a 20-minute scenic drive. Once there, you’ll have access to a wide variety of activities and excursions, including a wildlife bus tour, sled dog demonstration and guided nature hikes. Kids will want to sign up for the junior ranger program! With its idyllic creekside setting and genuine Alaskan log cabins, the Carlo Creek Lodge is a fine alternative for your family vacation to Denali National Park.

A good place for rustic cabins

by akbillwood

Well maintained, clean, comfortable cabins and very well run facilities at a reasonable cost. Just a few miles from Denali National Park with good restaurants near by. Kitchen was well stocked & bathroom clean and in good working order.

Cozy cabin stay very close to Denali

by Margaret S

Enjoyable, welcoming, comfortable, very clean and tidy bathrooms, helpful front desk and basically across the street from a few good dining establishments. We stayed one night in cabin T and two in cabin D (purely because T was already reserved). T was quite cozy, D slightly larger; both were very short walk to bathrooms. These were well-lit, clean, good water supply and we never had to wait for one to be available despite several non-bathroom cabins being full. Sweet little creek with tables and a short hiking trail if you need to stretch your legs or get just a little more woods time.
