The best thing about this property was the proximity to the Denali National Park. Second best was trail along the road in front of the resort so I could run and catch some beautiful views, plus it led to trails leading into Denali's park. There is a short walking path along the river, too. I hadn't done much research about he property, so was a bit confused about room locations. Parking can be a challenge, but if you don't mind walking, it's doable, just not fast. There are shuttles to get people around the property, too. Dining on property was fine, priced at what I would expect for a resort.
