Glaciers are new to us, being from Australia, so this is an exciting place to visit. We flew in to McCarthy which was a real experience in its own right flying through the mountain passes with glaciers all round us.

What we thought was a big sandbox is in fact Kennicott Glacier, right outside the door! Thanks to many, this historic place is now a lovely place to stay and see the area. Food is well prepared from scratch, served by pleasant wait staff. Plenty...More
We enjoyed our stay at this picture perfect lodge in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Full autumn colors and crisp, clear air made this location warm and inviting. Dinners at the lodge were delicious and delightful.
Stayed 2 nights. The rooms we spacious and very clean. Meals were served family style with assigned seating. Food was good but not exceptional - pretty much what you would expect for family style dining. Staff was very helpful including excellent coordination with McCarthy Air...More

We were there at the end of August. We had a driver / guide, but our impression was that it was not difficult driving . The road appeared to be well maintained. No ice, no snow. I don’t recall any scary drop-offs. The road was unsealed, and I think it took 2 1/2-3 hrs after we left the Richardson Highway. Some of the road follows the old railway line that was built to take copper ore from the mine to the smelter in Cordova.
At the pedestrian bridge, there was adequate flat parking space. You have to book the van from Kennicott to the bridge.
There is a luggage trolley on each side of the bridge. Some of our number wheeled their cases across the bridge, some of us used the trolley. We were assisted with our luggage at the
bridge, and again as we arrived at the lodge. There was little walking required.
It had rained all night before we drove to McCarthy, so the road was wet and slushy. This trip was in the van from the lodge.
