Our Jobs

WHO WE ARE

Creekside is owned and operated by two best friends, Holly and Tracey. They started their business in 1997 with hopes and dreams to create a property they would love to visit. They bought an older historical property (by Alaskan standards) with the best location possible in Carlo Creek; 26 years later they still love what they do, where they do it and the people they do it with. 

We work to attract the best people, by paying top wages, providing the best housing, and safe and fun home base to explore Denali for the summer.  We know a happy crew makes happy guests which makes happy owners!

Our expectations are simple: Everybody works. We look for professionals that are passionate about work and play and have a POSITIVE attitude and work ethic. A sense of place grows from the purposeful work of maintaining and growing this establishment, cultivating lifelong friendships, and our steadfast commitment to providing an outstanding experience for our guests and our crew in a setting that is beyond compare. 

Our motto is "Where guest's become friends".
Mission:  Cultivating relationships and facilitating opportunities to explore Denali National Park with inspired hospitality and intentional service.
Our Team Mission is to cultivate a culture that is fun, engaging, where everyone contributes, is recognized for their effort and hard work, and where they can be themselves.  Our people are our most valued asset.
