Denali National Park Lodging @ the Salmon Bake
It's no secret that The Denali Park Salmon Bake has the best food in Denali, but for many travelers our Cabins are the hidden gem they are seeking. Our cabins are clean, private, heated and by far the best value for lodging at The Park Entrance.
We offer free shuttle to and from The Denali Train Depot.
Our cabins are the closest to The Park Entrance Road and are centrally located near popular walking trails, area shopping and activities. Denali's only Grocery/Liquor Store CANYON MARKET is located right next door. From our cabins you can easily walk to your Park Bus Tour.
We don't claim to be an upscale resort. We let our reputation speak for itself. Our cabins are coveted by independent travelers and we are often sold out. If you chose to stay with us you have chosen to pay less for your rooms at The Park Entrance and to have more fun on your vacation.
A full refund, less a 10% service fee (Minimum $10) for cancellations, may be obtained with 30 days notice. With less than 30 days notice, refund is subject to re-rental of the cabin

I’m arriving by train, how will I get to the Salmon Bake? 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 1 train a day from each city. When you get off the train in Denali simply look for The Salmon Bake 15 passenger Van and our driver will help you with your bags and drive you directly to your cabin.
Will I be cold in your cabins? No, all of our cabins have electric heat and blankets. Believe it or not much of the summer has very nice weather.
I have an early Park Tour, what are the hours of your shuttles? Our shuttles operate 24 hours per day. Click here for our shuttle schedule
Can I walk to my Park Bus Tour? Yes, you can. The Park Visitor Center is about 1-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.
Why do you say you are conveniently located? Basically there are 2 roads in Denali: The 90 mile Park Road to Wonder Lake and Mt. McKinley, 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 within 1 mile of the Park Road and we are basically 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 busses. If you stay with us you have access to our shuttle bus 24 hours a day, but you can walk to everything.
Are the cabins right on the highway? No, the cabins are up the hill behind a gift shop and grocery store.
Where do I Park? There is a guest only parking lot on the hill right next to the cabins. We have recently expanded the lot to be sure there is sufficient parking for everyone.
Where do we buy food for our trip into The Park? In our restaurant we offer The Big Box Lunch for $12.95. We recommend you order your lunch when you check in and specify the time you need it ready. Or we can usually prepare you a lunch in about 10 minutes. We can also recommend the Canyon Market next door.
Is there a grocery store where I can buy things such as cold medicine or socks? Located right below the cabins is Canyon Market & Sled Dog Liquor. For a small store Canyon Market seems to have everything. They have a great deli, fresh fruit, bottled water and even socks.
Do you have an ATM? Yes. We also accept Visa, Master Card & Discover.
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 front desk or restaurant which have special filters. Also you can by water at Canyon Market.
Will you clean my room every day? Yes, we will. As water is a valuable resource at The Park Entrance 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.
