Find the status of Yukon campgrounds and recreation sites

Last updated November 17 at 11:50 a.m.

We are still camping during COVID-19. Learn more.

October through April, you may use campgrounds and recreation sites, but they are not serviced. Note that some have locked gates (details below); a printable-list is available here.

Prepare to be self-sufficient in harsh winter conditions.

No camping fees are charged October through April. You must bring your own toilet paper, firewood, and pack out your garbage. Please register all campsite use – day or night, year-round – using the permit envelopes provided in the campground.

If a site is closed, you cannot enter the campground or recreation site.

 

We have sorted sites by region and distance along the nearest highway.
