Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Around Denali

  • I’M ARRIVING BY TRAIN, HOW WILL I GET TO THE CROW’S NEST?
    When you book your reservation please indicate which train you are arriving on, there are only 2 choices, departing Anchorage or departing Fairbanks. There is only one train a day from each city. When you get off the train in Denali simply look for our driver holding a Crow's Nest sign and they will assist with your bags and drive you directly to reception. Tip: If you forgot to request a shuttle upon booking call us in advance and we will pick you up.
  • CAN I WALK TO MY PARK BUS TOUR?
    Yes, you can. The park's entrance is about a mile or a 20 minute walk. It’s a long day on the bus and many people prefer to walk. You also have the option of walking one way and taking the Dine Denali Shuttle back. As a Crow's Nest guest you will receive a free pass.
  • HOW CAN I GET AROUND DENALI?
    Guests receive complementary passes for the local Dine Denali Shuttle. The Dine Denali Shuttle picks up in our parking lot and stops in the park and at local restaurants. Have the most current schedule in hand when you download the FREE Denali Life App to your phone. We  offer an early morning shuttle into the park for the earliest park tour. Please register for that shuttle in advance. Most tours you book will pick you up at our property. If you have any questions about tours, please inquire with our front desk agents.

Lodging Questions

  • WILL YOU CLEAN MY ROOM EVERY DAY?
    Yes, we will. As water is a valuable resource in Denali, we will only wash your towels and linens upon your request. If you want towels washed simply put them in the laundry basket. If you want your sheets washed simply put the top bed sheet in the linen basket and we will provide you with fresh linens.
  • WHERE DO I PARK?
    There is a guest only parking lot by the front desk. We have recently expanded the lot to be sure there is sufficient parking for everyone.
  • ARE THE CABINS RIGHT ON THE HIGHWAY?
    No, the cabins are well above the road on Sugarloaf Mountain behind the Denali Park Salmon Bake (The Bake).
  • WHY DO YOU SAY YOU ARE CONVENIENTLY LOCATED?
    Basically there are 2 roads in Denali: The 90 mile Park Road to Wonder Lake and Denali, which you can only take by bus, and The Parks Highway. We are located on the Parks Highway, which is the only road between Anchorage and Fairbanks. We are less than 1 mile from the Park Road on the South end of where all the shops and restaurants are located. If you stay in an outlying area you will spend your whole trip waiting for shuttle buses. If you stay with us you have access to our the local shuttle or you can walk to everything.

    No, all of our cabins have electric heat and blankets. In fact, much of the summer has very nice weather.

Food & Drink

  • CAN I DRINK YOUR WATER?
    You can drink our water, but the water in the Denali area is very hard. It’s ok to brush your teeth in our cabins, but for drinking water we suggest you fill your water bottles up at our restaurant which has special filters.
  • WHERE CAN I GET BREAKFAST?
    The Overlook Restaurant, located near the parking area, serves a tasty breakfast daily and is included in the standard room rate. If you would like to order a boxed breakfast or lunch to take into the park, please do so at the front desk by 10pm the night before.
