Tombstone Territorial Park's 2,200 km2 protect a unique wilderness of rugged peaks, permafrost landforms and abundant wildlife, all reflected in a rich First Nations culture. The park is a legacy of the Tr'ondëk Hwëch'in land claim agreement and lies within their traditional territory.

The Dempster Highway bisects the park and provides an opportunity to view stunning arctic tundra landscapes and wildlife, and access to hiking areas. The concentration of wide ecological niches has resulted in a diverse collection of flora and fauna uncommon at this latitude.

Start your visit at the Tombstone Interpretive Centre which is a 1.5 hour drive from Dawson City, Yukon, 7 hours from Whitehorse and 12 hours from Inuvik, NWT.

 

Stay safe - Enjoy your stay

Tombstone Park is a remote park with few established trails. Even for day hikes, prepare for rough terrain and drastic weather changes. Download Planning a Trip to Tombstone Territorial Park for camping, hiking, permitting bear safety and other information.

We strongly advise you to leave a trip plan with a reliable friend or the RCMP before traveling into the Tombstone Park area. Include your planned routes, expected date of return, and when the authorities should be notified if you don't arrive home.

You are responsible for your own safety. Yukon Parks staff do not have the capacity or responsibility for initiating search and rescue.
