Independent Activities

If you are interested in striking out on your own, we can help you plan an independent day hiking, canoeing, biking, fishing, or flightseeing.

We encourage you to seek out independent adventures while at Camp Denali and North Face Lodge. You can borrow our trail and topographic maps, canoes, bikes, and fishing gear.

You can also enjoy Camp Denali’s resource center, where exhibits, collections, a resource library, and a microscope bring learning opportunities indoors.

Stroll down to our greenhouse at North Face Lodge to learn about the challenges and opportunities of Alaska’s growing season.

If quiet relaxation is your day’s ambition, prop up your feet, read from our extensive libraries of natural history topics and Alaskan literature, and relish unsurpassed mountain scenery. 

Paddle a canoe, tracing Denali's reflection in Wonder Lake.

Bike along the Denali Park Road.
