Territorial parks and campgrounds are open
Camping is different during COVID-19
You need to be more self-contained
- Pre-purchase your camping permit online, or at a vendor.
- Pack everything you need before hitting the road to limit stops in the communities.
- Only buy supplies in the community if stores are welcoming business.
- Bring extra water, soap, hand sanitizer and toilet paper.
- Only camp with members of your “combined household bubble,” maximum 1 bubble per site.
- Clean your picnic table before and after use.
- Use your RV’s toilet, if you have one.
- Follow all park and campground rules and the 6 steps to staying safe.
All orders and recommendations issued by Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health apply in territorial parks and campgrounds.
No one can self-isolate in a territorial park or campground.
Non-residents who are required by law to travel through Yukon within 24 hours cannot stay or stop in government-run campgrounds.
