  3. Tear the camping permit from the envelope to clip to your site number post.
  4. Place your payment or pre-paid daily permit(s) in the envelope or fill in your annual pass number. Seal the envelope and place it in the deposit vault.

Pre-paid permit purchase

You can purchase daily pre-paid camping permits ($12) in advance of your Yukon government campground stay. Use these as your payment when you register onsite. Pre-paid permits can be purchased at many highway lodges, gas stations, retail stores, liquor stores outside of Whitehorse, and at Environment Yukon offices. You'll find a complete list of vendors on our Licensed Vendors page.

Yukon resident annual permit

Yukon residents may purchase an annual campground permit ($50). If you plan to camp for more than four nights, this is a great investment. Permits are free for Yukon residents age 65 and older. Non-residents cannot purchase or use annual permits. Annual campground permits can be purchased online using Environment Yukon eServices, at many highway lodges, gas stations, retail stores, liquor stores outside of Whitehorse, and at Environment Yukon offices. You'll find a complete list of vendors on our Licensed Vendors page.


Annual permit holders must register each stay, minus the fee. Bring identification or documents proving residency, should it be requested by a Park Officer.

One permit per accommodation unit

A daily or annual permit authorizes the use of one accommodation unit at one campsite. Remember to register each stay onsite. If there is more than one accommodation unit at a campsite, they must each require separate permits. Clip both to the site number post. An accommodation unit is a tent, RV, camper, trailer, automobile, or other temporary moveable accommodation.
