The Park is home to the nation's highest peak, Denali (meaning the High One or the Great One in Athabaskan) towering at 20,320 ft.!

We strive to provide information and insight so our guests get the most out of their time in Denali. Our desire to serve our guests is rooted in the fact that we ourselves and each of our carefully selected and trained crew members feel genuinely blessed to be living and working here, and the positive atmosphere of appreciation and thoughtfulness is as much a vein running through our daily operations as the gold running through the mines that drew so many to this still-astounding location: Denali National Park and Preserve.

  • Denali reflections

McKinley Creekside Cabins & Café is not just a business to us; it is a cherished personal enterprise that remains one of the last privately owned and operated lodges and restaurants in Denali National Park, Alaska.  We take great pride and care in the product and service we offer and hope you enjoy it.

Make yourself at home on our web site, and you'll get some idea of the flavor of how we'd make you feel at home out here in the wilderness.

Whether it's an evening campfire by the creek, or a morning cappuccino at the Café to discuss the day's events, we provide a relaxed and informal atmosphere with professional service. Come and enjoy Denali at "Creekside" where friends and family come together under Alaska's midnight sun.
