Work at the Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge

This spectacular lodge is approximately 133 miles north of Anchorage, in a remote area overlooking the Chulitna River in Denali State Park. Hiking, rafting, fishing, flight seeing, and jet boating are popular leisure time activities in the area. It’s hard to beat the view of Denali from the lodge on a clear day. The lodge is open early May through mid-September with a variety of seasonal jobs available.


Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge is located 15 minutes from Trapper Creek and 50 minutes from Talkeetna. These small Alaskan towns offer amazing nature opportunities. Located on the Chulitna, Susitna, and Talkeetna Rivers, the communities offer fishing and hiking along with great local charm. The lodge is located in Denali State Park with amazing views of North America’s highest peak, Denali.

The lodge offers daily shuttles to Talkeetna and its array of local restaurants, tour options, and a general store. Scheduled shuttles to Anchorage and Wasilla offer team members access to Alaska’s large cities. Only 10 miles north of the lodge is Byers Lake Campground, a great place for hiking and kayaking on the crystal clear lake.
