Campground Facilitiespeople camping in yukon campground

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 icon image - this is a pdf file(2.9 MB). Some campgrounds also have wheelchair accessible picnic shelters.
