Work at the Denali Princess Lodge and McKinley Chalet Resort Employee Services

Our facility is located near the entrance to Denali National Park on the George Parks Highway. We offer endless opportunities for hiking and backpacking right outside your door. Hop on the shuttle to take you deep into the national park with a chance to glimpse Mt. McKinley, North America’s highest peak at 20,320 feet. This is a seasonal property with operations located approximately two hours south of Fairbanks and four hours north of Anchorage and is open from May to September.


The location of the Denali Princess Lodge and McKinley Chalet Resort Employee Services is approximately 12 miles from the entrance to magnificent Denali National Park in the historical and quaint coal mining community of Healy. Both locations are quiet in the winter and erupt into a hot spot of activity in the summer months with easy access for exploration of the local flora and fauna and a possible awe inspiring view of Mt. McKinley (weather permitting)!

Complimentary scheduled shuttles are offered to the park visitor center and science learning center, as well as a selection of area hiking trails.  One can access the six million acre park by choosing between a fully guided tour or a ride through the park on a shuttle bus.  Though there is a small grocery/convenience store across the street from employee housing, a weekly shuttle to Fairbanks also offers employees a chance to access the conveniences of Alaska’s second largest city.
