Find the status of Yukon campgrounds and recreation sites

We last updated this page on October 28, 2022, at 4 pm.

Find out the status of Government of Yukon campgrounds and recreation sites before heading out on your next trip.

Most sites are open and serviced from the Friday nearest May 1 to the Sunday nearest September 30,  yearly. Many sites are accessible in winter but we do not service them.

If a site is open, you can enter. If it’s closed, you cannot enter the campground or recreation site. Note that some sites have locked gates early in the season. 

If a site is serviced:

  • outhouses are cleaned and garbage is removed regularly; and
  • firewood is provided.

If a site is not serviced:

  • bring your own toilet paper and firewood; and
  • pack out your garbage.

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