For the 2014 season, Yukon government campgrounds opened May 16 with full services to most to end September 8. Starting this fall, full services will be maintained at 10 government campgrounds until Sept. 30 to benefit residents and tourists alike.
Click here for information on backcountry camping in Tombstone Territorial Park and to reserve campsites for Grizzly, Talus and Divide lakes.
The Yukon government's roadside campgrounds offer picnic tables, campfire pits, firewood and at least one picnic shelter. You’ll also rely on outhouses and hand-pumped cold water.
If you prefer other conveniences, try one of the Yukon’s privately operated RV parks or campgrounds.
New This Year: Firewood in Yukon government campgrounds has been treated with a theft deterrent. Only campground users can use this wood, ideally for small fires since the wood supply is limited. Removing firewood from a government campground is an offense under the Parks and Land Certainty Act.
Government campgrounds do not have RV dump stations. You can get a list of dump station locations at Visitor Information Centres.
Campgrounds with wheelchair accessible outhouses are shown in the Yukon Government Campgrounds Map (2.9 MB). Some campgrounds also have wheelchair accessible picnic shelters.
Please follow these rules to ensure you and your camping neighbors have a safe and comfortable experience.
