Tips for Families

Plan at least three nights at the lodge; after a long, stressful drive, it's a must. The Edgerton Highway (aka dirt road) has NO services along the way, so one must be prepared for 65 miles of indepedent travel. Take food, water, extra clothing, and a good attitude. No cell service, either. If your kids are picky, pack some healthy alternatives, like peanut butter, bread, cereal bars, etc. We brought all of the above and our son was pretty happy for the snacks. Plan on alpine-like weather; the lodge sits at the edge of a series of glaciers, and wind can be cold. Bring warm hats, gloves, rain gear, and sturdy hiking boots for everyone. A backpack for infants is a must. The lodge is only open June 1- Labor Day. We love Labor Day weekend; the leaves are turning and the views, stunning. Many Anchorage and Fairbanks families travel here for one last hurrah before winter, so reserve early. A shuttle is available to McCarthy, five miles down the road, and a little town where no "outside" autos are allowed. Try the local store for an 'on the go' meal, or eat at Ma Johnsons for a special treat. An epic road trip.
