New: 24 hour limit on unoccupied campsites

There has been a change to the Campground Regulations that affects all campground users.

Camping sites must NOT be left unoccupied for more than 24 hours.

Unoccupied means that no registered occupant is physically present at the camping site. The penalty for violating this regulation is $200 per offence.

Trail projects

Pine Lake and Wolf Creek trail upgrades

Yukon Parks received Canadian Infrastructure Program funding from the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor) to rehabilitate the Pine Lake and Wolf Creek campground trails. Trail work was completed in summer 2018, making the first section of each trail wheelchair-accessible to a viewpoint and picnic area. The trails maintain a low-key, natural experience (i.e.: no paving). Further improvements will include benches and interpretive signs about the natural and cultural significance of the areas, to be completed by spring of 2019.

In 2016, the Yukon Bureau of Statistics (YBS) conducted a survey on behalf of Yukon Parks to gather information on Yukon residents and visitor perspectives about camping in Yukon government campgrounds. The results have been analyzed and reported on and are being used to make improvements on Yukon campgrounds and parks. To learn more about the results a summary report and the full report are provided below.
