Rules and safety at campgrounds and recreation sites

For everyone’s safety and enjoyment, follow these rules.


  • Campsites are first-come, first-served. You cannot register or hold sites for people who are not present.
  • Register all campsite use, day or night, year-round. Review rates, permits and how to register. 
  • Camp, park and drive only in designated areas.
  • You cannot camp overnight at day-use areas and recreation sites.
  • You can only stay 14 nights in one campground in any 30-day period.
  • You cannot leave your campsite unoccupied for more than 24 hours.
  • Quiet hours are from 11 pm to 7 am. Limit use of generators and other noise at all times.
  • You may sleep:
    • 8 people per regular site;
    • 5 people per tenting-only site; and
    • 12 people per group site.
  • You can host more people on a site during the day.


  • Never feed or disturb wild animals.
  • You must store wildlife attractants inside a hard-sided vehicle, trailer, bear-proof canister or locker at night and when you’re away during the day, even for short periods.
  • Do not bring food or other attractants into a tent. Attractants include coolers, pots, utensils, dish cloths, food, beverages, toiletries, pet food, garbage, gas cans, bug spray, recyclables and anything that may attract wildlife.
  • Park staff may remove and secure unattended wildlife attractants if they are not stored correctly. An enforcement action may follow.
  • Put garbage and recycling in bear-proof bins or pack it out with you.
  • Review the fishing rules for the body of water where you'll fish. There may be special regulations.
  • Practise bear safetyleave no trace and wildlife viewing ethics.

Motorized vehicles and aircraft

  • Stay on roads and established trails.
  • To operate an ATV, you must follow the Yukon's ATV rules. These include having your registration, insurance, licence and a helmet.
  • To use an aircraft or drone, you must get a park permit and follow Transport Canada rules.


  • Use firewood responsibly. Take only what you need.
  • Use existing fire pits, keep campfires small and thoroughly extinguish unattended fires, including at night.
  • You cannot remove firewood from a campground.


  • Keep your pets leashed.
  • Pick up your pet’s waste and dispose of it in the bins provided.


  • Use caution at all times on and around water.
  • Early season melt can cause water levels to rise quickly in small creeks and streams.
  • Ice on lakes and around creeks and rivers can be extremely dangerous during early season camping.
  • Treat or boil all water for 1 minute before you consume it, including water provided via hand pumps and tanks.


  • There are no dump stations for RV liquid waste at our campgrounds. Dump your waste at these locations.
  • Dump grey water into outhouse holes or broadcast. Dispose of filtered food in waste bins provided. Dumping in fire pits creates a wildlife attractant.
  • During the unserviced season, bring your own toilet paper and firewood, and pack out all garbage.


  • Leave firearms packed away.
  • You cannot discharge a firearm in or near a campground or recreation site.
