What does the name Denali mean

"the high one" as called by the Koyukon people who are native to the area

Can you see the Northern Lights from Denali Natl Park?

tkimmins is correct. Northern Lights can see seen from Denali during the winter months.

Hi What is the best time to visit this park? Which month?

I was there in late August. Cool weather, didn't see one mosquito. I thought that to be unusual. It was sunny all day and maybe that kept them at bay.

Has a cult ever been here?

Noooo

Is the short autumn season from late August to early September beautiful?

It is absolutely beautiful. Lots of animals out as well.

How long does it take to drive from wasilla?

Weather dependant in the fall it took us about 4 hours.

Do you have any sand pits or stuff like that?

I don't recall any sand pits on our visit. Perhaps you would need to contact the National Park service for an "official" answer.

is there a free shuttle from the visitor center to the king salmon restaurant if we do not have lodging reservations at the princess wilderness lodge?

Driving is easiest, can check on availability

Does King Salmon Restaurant at Denali entrance take reservations?

Yes,

The salmon back is always a fun restaurant to visit if you have a tour booked for denali or if your just passing through to fairbanks. I am unfamiliar with the buildings history, but once inside it has a tavern feel to it. They always have a great menu that ranges from comfort food to seafood. I haven't ordered anything that was bad. Their salads are huge. It's such a visited tourist location that they started allowing people to write on currency from their country and staple it to the walls. One of the better restaurants in that area.

Excellent place for food in the area. Very similar menu to 49th state brewing company in Anchorage. I believe they are owned by the same people. Excellent food and service in an interesting atmosphere. Many good features on the menu to include their signature salmon bake to elk burgers.

Good food and great service. It is really quite nice inside. The outside certainly doesn't reflect it. Friends had halibut and chips and enjoyed. I had my first elk burger and it was tasty. Steak sandwich was also tasty. A lot of beers to select from. I recommend the 907 lager.

Two of our tables orders did not arrive until some we're done. One order was wrong. Ran out of root beer so only one of the twins got theirs (not good for any twin to get something the other doesn't). The halibut fish and chips was warm but not hot. The pork nachos were supposed to have bar-b-que sauce and it finally came but the pork was cold and the chips soggy when it finally arrived.

Really good fish and chips. Husband had the Yak Quesidilla. Pretty good. Not much difference in taste than burger. Grandson had the cedar wood salmon. He liked everything but the glaze so scraped it off. We're from the South so prices have been a shock. $87 for lunch, included tip. No alcohol, 3 people. Super nice wait staff and friendly locals.

A unique experience! Each section of the restaurant tilted in one manner or another. I stayed busy taking in all the authentic Alaskan decor on the walls and shelves. We left our meal choices up to our waitress, Anna, and she picked the perfect dishes for us! We ate yak and reindeer, and shared a delicious Alaskan blueberry pie for dessert. Thanks Anna! Awesome experience! Great service!

So, love the ambiance. Very kitchy and individualistic wa decor.The service was good and attentive. It wasnt super busy though.The food was very good. I had the Baked Halibut Burrito which was shredded halibut with beans, cheese, and sauce. The mole drizzled on the top was good. I wouldnt get it again only because I was hoping for baked halibut filets in the burrito. The beans overwhelmed the halibut and so lost the flavor.The salmon giler entrees at the table were over cooked in my opinion.Great beer choices and drink options. The Bake Mistake is a perfect fruity drink if you like rum and sweet fruit juice.

This was the best eating experience we had in Alaska! Erin, our waitress, was very friendly and went the extra mile. She even brought us a sampling of their delicious clam chowder! Our drinks and dinner were reasonably priced... everything was delivered in a timely manner and the way we ordered it. Salmon Bake is a must if you are visiting either the Healy or Denali area. And ask for Erin - she is the best!

Food and service were both amazing. We had the smoked salmon BLT and yak-a-dilla. Not 5 stars just because it was cold in there when we went. I think there was a problem with the heating.

Could not of asked for a better experience. The last time I was in Denali it was 10 years ago and it jumpstarted my love for nature and wildlife, now I am going to school for wildlife conservation. But I also remembered the amazing time I had in the little town, now 10 years later I am back and it still has an amazing atmosphere and energy. Our server Erin was so down to earth, funny, and created our first experience at Salmon Bake, a memorable one. I was also happy to find that a young man named Josh is from my neck of the woods and that I went to school with a cousin of his. It is the wonderful people in customer service, like Erin and Josh, that makes traveling and experiencing new things, so much more worth it, than just enjoying nature. Shows that even a small corner of the world, like Denali, still has wonderful and good people in it. Sincerely, a new fan of fish and chips, Jordan S.

Fantastic burgers & great friendly service. Justin was our server & we immediately made a connection since my husband & I were from the south too. Burger was juicy & amazing kind of sauce that is maybe a mayo/surracha dip. Thank you to Justin for the great service & info on the local area.

Overall, a good meal. Friendly service, fresh food, nice decor to fit the area. There were two disappointments, though. First, how can you pair a very tasty salmon dip appetizer with Ritz crackers? Come on! Make a home made crostini or bread chip. Totally took the mojo out of the dish. Second, the fish n chips was very tasty and moist, but really needed a towel to soak up an excessive amount of grease. Basic stuff, guys. Come on! This good meal could easily have been really great.

Such an authentic place. You can tell how many people have enjoyed meals here. It is a fantastic place. After a day in the park they offer great local beers and yak-adillas, elk burgers, crab grilled cheese, salmon, and of course all the classic food you would expect. The floor is crooked and half of the building looks like it is falling down, but that just makes it all the more authentic. The staff knows the menu well and they are all so professional and helpful. There are also events going on all the time and it gets lively late at night.
