Site description: 
  • The Yukon’s newest campground with several sites overlooking the lake. Six new walk-in sites.
  • The Tagish name for the lake, Tséi Zhéłe' Méne', refers to the howling sound made by the wind in the rocks across the lake.
  • The now-abandoned town of Conrad City supported the Venus silver mine in the early 1900s.
  • Hike the nearby Sam McGee Trail, also called the Mountain Hero Trail. It connects to Carcross's famous mountain bike trail system.
  • In partnership with Singletrack to Success and Carcross/Tagish First Nation, the Government of Yukon is building a new family-friendly, non-motorized, multi-use trail that will connect to viewpoints and the walk-in and main campgrounds. Please stay clear of construction. Completion is expected end of summer 2022. Interpretation and trail name will be developed in collaboration with the Conrad Historic Site committee.
