Our Jobs


Creekside is owned and operated by two best friends, Holly and Tracey.  Started in 1997 with hopes and dreams to create a property we would love to go to. We purchased an older historical property (by Alaskan standards :-) with the best location possible.  Twenty five years later we still love what we do, where we do it and the people we do it with. 

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.

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. Come work in a place surrounded by astonishing beauty, with fantastic people, while learning new things….and maybe something new about yourself!

Our motto is "Where guest's become friend's" 
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.
