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.

Government campgrounds do not have RV dump stations. You can get a list of dump station locations at Visitor Information Centres or in the Yukon RVflyer.
