tie the knot in denali

McKinley Creekside Cabins is the perfect natural setting for couples looking for an intimate destination wedding in Denali! McKinley Creekside Cabins, Café, and Bakery is located 13 miles south of Denali National Park on the banks of beautiful Carlo Creek. The Creekside Pavilion is a lovely and rustic outdoor space, ideal for a small ceremony or you can choose to do your vows next to Carlo Creek. Step off the pavilion and enjoy the walking path following Carlo Creek . No Alaskan wedding would be complete without a campfire and cornhole to enjoy while you party down during your reception! 

Our fantastic Creekside Café will cater your big day.  Our specialty is hearty, homestyle favorite's or fresh Alaskan seafood made with fresh and local ingredients. Our talented team can cater a menu tailored specifically to you, your tastes and budget. We have an outdoor bar area and you have the option for a host or no host bar.  Our friendly and professional hospitality team can take care of all the little details from helping with set up to clean up so you can spend your reception enjoying your guests. Contact us in the form provided below for more information about your dream destination wedding and we'll get back to you with a quote and get to planning! 

Drew and I really enjoyed the rustic beauty of McKinley Creekside Cabins for our wedding.

The creek in the back of the pavilion, corn hole, and fire pit were perfect entertainment for our guests. Creekside’s catering service was getting compliments right and left from our guests because it was absolutely delicious! The hosts took most of the reins in making the menu, taking the stress off of us for planning. We also had them make our wedding cake, a delicious carrot cake. The hospitality manager Liz, and owners Holly and Tracey worked with us before arriving and after to make sure all the details were buttoned up and our day ran as smooth as silk with no hiccups at all, something out of a wedding dream album!  -Mrs. Nina Warf
