Alaska's Camp Denali was constructed in the fifties by a group of survivalist types who took great care chopping down spruce trees out of concern for the local environment. That leave-as-little-trace-as-possible ethos still informs the way the camp does business. Guests stay in cabins outfitted with hand-sewn quilts and wood stoves that provide only one major amenity: views of Mount McKinley, the tallest peak in North America.
