Working at the Denali Park Salmon Bake.
Spending a summer in Denali National Park is truly a life altering experience. Many people come to work in Alaska for a summer and end up spending a lifetime.
The Bake is locally owned and operated by Denali Visions 3000. This small Alaskan business is managed by three young, (well kind of young), fellows who all first came to Denali as seasonal employees.The three partners love the park and feel blessed to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on earth. They place a high value on hiring like-minded employees and aim to be the best employer in the area.
The Bake is a fast paced bar and restaurant that strives to be the best eating, drinking, and entertainment establishment in Denali. We take great pride in serving high quality meals and providing exceptional service to our guests.We are looking for hard working, fun-loving individuals to help accomplish our mission. We value our reputation of being a "Cool place to work" and we are proud of the fact that we have many employees return summer after summer.
The reason The Bake is such a great place to work is that we promote teamwork and hold our employees to the highest of standards within a casual, fun atmosphere. If you work well with others and take pride in doing a good job you will enjoy working for us. Our motto is:
"It’s not fair to the good employees to keep the bad employees around."

Life Living & Working at The Bake
The Bake is located at the entrance to Denali National Park. We are one of the few independent operations left in the area, and are surrounded by giant corporate hotels, which bringhundreds of thousands of guests to the area every season.
The Bake and all the other area hotels hire thousands of people from around the world to come to Denali and work in their businesses. All local employers provide housing complexes for their employees. Life in Denali is a lot like going to summer camp when you were a kid. For 4 months you will work, live and play together with people from all around the world.
When we first purchased The Bake the only employee housing available was without heat and electricity. As we grew we were determined to find a great place for our employees to live. In 2009 we purchased Healy Base Camp, which housed 30 employees. Jumping forward to the present we have built Base Camp into a wonderful little community of approximately 90 employees, complete with an employee recreation room and brand new private shower house.
As we continue to grow with the addition of the Brewery, we needed more housing, so in 2012 we built Miners Basecamp. The new complex is situated between Miners Market and the 49th State Brewing Co. It’s conveniently located near the laundry room, bathhouse and shuttle stop. Each room has 2-single beds and basic amenities. The private toilets and showers are located in a nearby building. If you’re coming to Alaska with a friend you can opt to room together, just let us know when you fill out your housing contract. Rent at Base Camp is $12 per day, which will be deducted from your paycheck weekly. There will be a $50 housing deposit deducted from your first paycheck. Rent also includes a daily Continental Breakfast in the Employee Recreation Room & Free Transportation to and from Work, the Park, the Canyon Business District & the Laundromat.
For those seeking an authentic Alaskan experience and don’t wish to have a roommate we can offer you reduced rate campsites in Healy. This campground is located within our transportation network and is included in the price of your rent. A basic site without electricity is $5 per day, with electricity $8 per day. Showers and laundry are extra. For an extra dollar per day The Base Camp Meal Card can be included. See meals plan below.
Base Camp Meal Card "The Best Meal Plan in Denali!"
Your rent at Base Camp will also include a Base Camp Meal Card. Your meal card allows you to purchase 2 meals per day during designated meal times from all three of our restaurants, The Denali Park Salmon Bake, Prospectors Historic Pizzeria & Ale House and the 49th State Brewing Co. The price for each meal is only $3 and must be paid at the time you order. The meal cost cannot be deducted from you paycheck.
Most Denali Area Meal Plans charge you on days that you don’t eat, like when you’re backpacking in The Park. In the Base Camp meal plan you only pay for what you eat. Meals are not transferable and cannot be shared. Certain items such as King Crab Legs & Halibut Entrees are not included in the meal plan, but exempt items can be purchased for 50% off. For the most part, you have the freedom to eat well. You can order a $13 Burger or a $15 small pizza, a $16 salad or $14 Nachos, for $3. In addition to two $3 meals you will have the opportunity to purchase one bonus meal for 50% each day. This gives you the opportunity to taste anything on the menu whenever you want. Meals cannot be used or purchased together or in conjunction with any other offers. All meals must be consumed on property unless management authorization is given during busy restaurant hours.
The Bake is a non-smoking work place. If you can't last a shift without a smoke, please don't apply. Personal cell phone use and texting is not permitted at work. While casual dress is acceptable, we expect you to be clean and neat in appearance at work. All front of the house staff is required to purchase and wear a Salmon Bake Uniform for $20. If you complete your contract, and the shirts are clean and reusable, $20 per shirt will be reimbursed.
You will be required to provide your own transportation to Denali. Most people fly into Anchorage and spend the night in a hostel. The next day they take a shuttle to Denali. If you are hired we will provide you with more information.
