Reservations and costs

The Reservation Page provides information and shows availability. It is not an interactive website from which you can make and confirm your reservation. To confirm a reservation requires telephone or email contact with Tolovana Hot Springs. Payment by check or money order is required to confirm a reservation. Sorry, credit cards are not accepted.

>> Check availability

Use of the hot springs and the cabins is by reservation and fee payment only. Reservations and fee payment may be made up to 3 months in advance of the first night’s stay (based on date) and not a single day earlier. Requests more than 3 months in advance of first nights reservation will be not be accepted. Example: for a reservation starting on 21 March apply on 21 December.

Drawing Rules for high demand times

THS LTD uses a drawing system to determine the winners during high demand times. We feel this is the fairest method. Drawings are used by Alaska Department of Fish and Game for allocating high demand hunting resources and by Denali National Park for the high demand fall private vehicle road lottery. Any reservation that is received in the 24-hour period (midnight to midnight) three (3) months from the date of your first days reservation are entered into the drawing. There is no advantage to sending your request early in the day and it is NOT on a first come first serve system. The drawing is held and the names are logged in the order they are drawn. If the winning party is unable to confirm the reservation then the 2nd name drawn is contacted. We keep this list and the order of the drawing in case there are cancelations.

Reservations are confirmed upon receipt of full payment. Specific questions and current trail conditions are available by contacting the office prior to your departure. However, there is no THS LTD staff on site so trail reports come from visitors returning from their trip. A trail and area map with the 10.1 mile trail marked on it can be printed from this site.
