Description: 
  • Often used as a base for travellers heading up the Dempster Highway or into Tombstone Territorial Park.
  • Plan to arrive early. It usually fills up quickly.
  • A short foot trail goes to the Tombstone Interpretive Centre. The centre is open 7 days a week from late May to mid-September. The centre offers free interpretive walks, talks and special events. The schedule is posted on site.
  • Several hiking trails begin at or near the campground. A 1 km, wheelchair-accessible interpretive trail leads from the centre to a beaver pond. Another trail loops from the campground through the tundra. A 3rd trail goes along the banks of the North Klondike River.
  • Pick up a copy of the brochure, "A Guide to Tombstone Territorial Park" for more information on day-hikes and routes throughout the park.
