Description: 
  • You can only tent inside the electric fence, due to high grizzly bear use of the area. There are 20 tent sites within the fence.
  • The Southern Tutchone name for the creek, Khär Shän Nji, means “big roots broken down.” This name recalls flash floods that occurred long ago.
  • A 500 m interpretive trail begins at the campground and goes along the shoreline of Łù’àn Män (Kluane Lake). Make noise and bring your bear spray!
