Annual permit holders will continue to be able to use their permits to camp at any frontcountry territorial campground on a first come, first served basis. This is a pilot and we look forward to hearing from Yukoners and visitors about what works, what doesn’t and where we need to readjust for future camping seasons.

    • A Yukon resident is a person who makes their home, resides and is ordinarily present in the Yukon.

    This applies to both frontcountry and backcountry reservations, including standard camping, walk-in tent camping, and group camping.

    Changes

    If you need to make a change to your backcountry reservation, you must cancel your reservation and start a new booking.

    If you do not arrive and check-in by then, your reservation is considered a no show. The reservation is cancelled without refund and the campsite is made available to others.

    Backcountry reservations

    To receive camping permits, all hikers must register in person at the Tombstone Interpretive Centre daily between 9 am and 12 pm (noon) for same day departures, or by 4 pm for next day departures.

    Park and area closures

    At times, Yukon Parks must close campsites, campgrounds, or parts of campgrounds to ensure visitor safety, protect natural resources or facilities and for other reasons.

    If Yukon Parks closes a campsite, campground, or part of a campground for any reason, all affected reservations will be cancelled immediately. We will do our best to provide you with as much notice as possible in these situations.

    Refunds for closures will be processed automatically as follows:

    Scenario Refund percentage
    Camping stay not yet started (you have not checked in and registered yet). 100 per cent of campground permit fees
    0 per cent of backcountry reservation fees
    Camping stay in progress (you have checked in and registered).  0 per cent - no refund

    Example:

    Yukon Parks closes Wolf Creek Campground due to a flooding incident. Parks staff direct all people in the campground to evacuate. All reservations and campground permits are cancelled immediately.

    At this point, campers who have checked in and registered their campsite are not eligible for a refund. People who have reservations during the period of the closure, but have not yet arrived and checked in, will automatically get a full refund of all fees paid.

    People who wish to reserve a campsite after a closure has ended, including those whose reservation was cancelled due to the closure, are required to make a new reservation.

    Special notes for backcountry campgrounds

    Area closures and advisories can occur with short notice. Check with park staff and any signage at trailheads before heading into the backcountry.
