Just 30 minutes away from the South Entrance to Denali National Park, this is one of the BEST private camping cabins on the Parks Highway! Strategically located on a secluded homestead from the 1960s, you'll be able to see Mount McKinley on a clear day! The nearby Summit Lake is perfect for fly fishing and local hiking trails are accessible right from the front door. We've got a couple kayaks for rent if you'd like to explore the local lake. Experience a TRUE Alaskan living experience in this DRY cabin with Modern touches. Since there's no interior running water or septic system, we encourage our guests to stop by the local gas station to pick up a couple gallons of water and some water bottles for drinking/washing hands. We do provide a camping toilet (5 gallon bucket with seat and trash bags) but you'll have to haul the bags out with you when you leave - along with your trash. Electricity is provided via a Generator that we provide - but you will need to refill the fuel you use at the local gas station. There is heat provided via a Fuel Oil stove. To save costs on cleaning fees - you'll be responsible to leave the cabin in as good - if not better condition than you find when you arrive. We practice the "Leave No Trace" principles. Since we don't have a local cleaning team in place, you'll also need to bring your own bedding (recommend a sleeping bag) and linens/towels etc. If you're flying in to Anchorage we recommend you stop in at the local Walmart and buy a cheap sleeping bag to carry with you on your journey throughout the state. It will be about the same cost as a typical cleaning fee. Trust us, the extra work to enjoy this cabin is worth it! It has the most INCREDIBLE scenery! Bring S'mores and some firewood for the fire pit and enjoy an Alaskan experience at Denali's Doorstep!Just 30 minutes away from the South Entrance to Denali National Park, this is one of the best private cabins on the Parks Highway.

This dry cabin is one of the best I’ve stayed in. Very clean, stunning views, and the host is responsive. Plenty to do in the area and a wonderful escape for anyone looking to get away. Highly recommend Mikes place!

Denali on the doorstep.
Mike’s site is as described. It did exactly what we needed it to do - give us a base to explore Denali. And we left our Airstream parked there for several nights unaccompanied as we backpacked in the Park. Nothing Mike or indeed the world could do about Alaskan mosquitos - but given the time of year they were there in force. Advice to future campers with Trailers (and ours is 23ft) is follow Mike’s good advice. The site itself is tight to get into unless you reverse up the track and into it. Not hard, but set yourself up for success early by reversing. And you’d want - as he says - to arrive in daylight although very straightforward to do this in the summer as the sun barely sets.

Awesome host.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to make the trip. However, I thought I would leave a review about Mike. He’s amazing. He was so responsive, engaging and accommodating. Our heater went out on our new travel trailer so we had to cancel, but he was very kind and concerned. I definitely plan to visit in the future. You’re awesome, Mike!

Great Site!
This site was incredible. Waking up to view of mountains and the river each day in a remote part of Alaska was the perfect escape. Mike was extremely communicative and the site was well kept, including a table, two benches, a fire pit, a tent pad and a spacious driveway. The location right off the highway made for an easy commute to nearby Denali and Healy. We definitely hope to return!

Great camp spot / secluded
Beautiful little perch off the highway. Easy access, make sure to read the instructions. We went in the summer and walked to the river. Saw beavers! No bears for us, but mosquitos came in the late evening around 9pm. Bring bug spray! Nice beautiful spot to break up the drive from Anchorage to Denali, vice versa. Truly beautiful.
