We went in on a saturday around 1pm, made arrangements via internet thru their website and also called to confirm on the toll free number. Uno and Phillip own and run the bed and breakfast, but were not there on this particular trip, Uno's brother Hung So was. We were the only people in the 22 room place, we had the upstairs room with bathroom in the room and a view looking directly towards Denali, which as you can see was a beautiful blue sky day, which is not typical most days, because Denali is over 20,000+ ft high, winds and storms surrounding the mountain. Flying over Denali north of Anchorage to points North can experience slight turbulence due to winds over the mountain range. The B & B is open year round and accommodate tourists in the summer and snowmobilers in the winter time. It is conveniently located off the Denali hwy 250 miles north of Anchorage, about a 4 hour drive.
Downstairs is the spacious living room w/satillite TV, DVD, VCR and the other side is the dining room. In the morning we got up at 8am Sung Ho was making breakfast and brewing coffee, he had a lovely table setting for us, sausage, eggs and potatoes, toast, juice and coffee.
Troublesome Creek campground is just a few minutes north of Denali Viewpoint South. Roughly ten campsites mark this comparatively bland campground, but such established accommodations come fewer and farther between so far north of Talkeetna. A few trails emanate from this area (including one traversing almost the whole of the park along the Kesugi Ridge) and the Chulitna River is less than a mile's hike. Watch for ferns and cow parsnip in the area.
Cheap, easy to use and midway between Anchorage and Denali National Park.
Denali Viewpoint North is an observation platform and campground all in one. Situated at the northern end of the state park, there is room for dozens of RVs and a handful of tents under the trees. The fiddlehead fern is the most prevalent vegetation in this area, so those wishing to break the trail will do so with additional toil.
