Wrangell Mountains Wilderness Cabins

Better than your own private Denali Park.... Wrangell Mountains Wilderness Lodge has been the place where wild souls adventure and return year after year. Originally constructed from salvaged bridge timbers, the main lodge now offers a tavern and seasonal kitchen. The surrounding cabins provide hunters, fishers, hikers, bikers, skiers, and explorers of all stripes a clean, comfortable base from which to rest, recharge, and regroup. Located more than 100 miles in any direction from the nearest towns, we aim to provide a warm, welcoming place for visitors to Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve, whether for work or pleasure. We are 100% off-grid. The cabin has heat, light, linens, dining area, fridge, cook stove, pots/pans/utensils, coffee maker, potable water in bottles with pump, TV (for watching DVDs), private outhouse, and access to fully-plumbed wash cabin May - September. We are surrounded by mountain wilderness in a beautiful, remote, and peaceful place that you'll have nearly all to yourself. We have most of life's essentials on-site, so don't hesitate to ask-- we want your stay to be as pleasant as possible.
