Kennicott River Lodge & Hostel Reviews


Kennicott River Lodge and Hostel is 400 ft. at the end of the McCarthy Road in the biggest National Park in the U.S. The main log lodge is where the common kitchen,lounge,bathrooms and showers are. The cabins are very close by the main lodge and all buildings sit on the banks of the the Kennicott River facing the front of the Kennicott Glacier! The view is one of the best in the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and the world! We have a nice sauna that has room for 12 or more people with a private deck over looking the Glacier and mountains. The Hostel is a very laid back place to relax and enjoy after a long day hiking and sightseeing. We have horse shoes and a big fire pit outside for folks to enjoy the evenings under the Midnight Sun.
