FEATURING:
DENALI SQUARE
Denali Square, nestled on our 60-acre McKinley
Chalet Resort at the gates of Denali National Park,
is the perfect place to soak up the Alaska experience.
Guests can dine, relax, connect, explore and be
entertained in our private retreat.
Denali Square is best described as both a hub and a retreat
for Holland America Line guests at the doorstep of Denali
National Park. It features cozy fire pits, perfect for gathering
around on cool Alaska evenings and making s’mores; outdoor
seating for guests who wish to enjoy the scenery; retail shops
offering local goods; and an artist-in-residence cabin where
Alaska native and local artists display and discuss their works.
Walking paths in and around Denali Square show off the
property’s mountainous landscapes and beautiful setting just
across the Nenana River from Denali National Park.

The largest building in the complex is Karstens, the grand
7,000-square-foot two-story restaurant showcasing views of
the neighboring mountains for dining guests. An inviting deck
with outdoor seating also allow guests to immerse themselves
in this special venue as they drink and dine.

At the center of Denali Square is an amphitheater with a
covered performance stage and bench seating for guests
to enjoy a variety of local shows, ranger talks and
demonstrations. Those wanting to quench their thirst or
listen to live music can visit Gold Nugget Saloon, home to
the Music of Denali Dinner Theater.
