Caribou Lodge is an Alaska wilderness lodge located on a remote lake above the timberline in the Talkeetna Mountains, just southeast of Denali National Park and east of Talkeetna. Nature and tranquility are its only neighbors. Caribou Lodge is one of a select few Alaska lodges with fantastic views of Denali and the Talkeetna Mountains yet is actually not located inside Denali National Park. Wildlife in the area include caribou, moose, grizzly and black bears, Dall sheep, wolves, coyotes, fox, wolverine and many species of birds.
The long days of summer bring awesome early sunrises at Caribou Lodge, and the elegance of the midnight sun as it slips behind Mt. Denali is a sight to behold. Spending a few days in your private rustic but comfortable cabin at Caribou Lodge is an insightful and authentic way to experience living in the Alaska bush.
