Check the availability page for up-to-date information on the status and warnings for road-accessible campgrounds and recreation sites. Campers are also encouraged to check road conditions prior to traveling.
Campsites are available on a first-come-first-served basis. No reservations are available.
Yukon Parks maintains backcountry campgrounds at Tombstone Territorial Park, Herschel Island - Qikiqtaruk Territorial Park, Fort Selkirk Historic Site and on the Thirty Mile section of the Yukon River. These sites have limited facilities and can only be accessed by foot, air or water. Registration is not required for Fort Selkirk and Thirty Mile sites. For more information, view or pick up a copy of A guide to camping in/au Yukon.
Reservation and a special permit is required for Tombstone Territorial Park backcountry campsites. Click here for information and to reserve campsites for Grizzly, Talus and Divide lakes.
The Yukon government's road-accessible campgrounds offer picnic tables, campfire pits, firewood and at least one picnic shelter. All have outhouses and many have hand-pumped cold water. For site-specific facility information, view the Camping in Yukon booklet, map and individual site maps (available online March 2017).
If you prefer other conveniences, try one of the Yukon’s privately operated RV parks or campgrounds.
Campgrounds and recreation sites with wheelchair accessible outhouses are shown in the Camping in/au Yukon booklet and map. Some have wheelchair-accessible kitchen shelters, campsites or other facilities. These are indicated on the site maps (available online March 2017).
Please follow these rules to ensure you and your neighbors have a safe and comfortable experience.
