Yukon territorial parks and other conservation areas

The Yukon has 8 territorial parks and 12 habitat protection or special management areas. Some of these areas are established and some are in the process of being designated protected areas.

Yukon Parks Strategy

The Yukon Parks Strategy sets the long-term direction for the Yukon’s territorial parks system from 2020 to 2030. It will help ensure healthy land, healthy people and a healthy economy.

Major actions include:

  • Extend the camping season from May 1 to September 30.
  • Build a new campground near Whitehorse with up to 150 campsites.
  • Co-develop a collaborative management framework with Yukon First Nations.
  • Develop new trails in territorial parks.
  • Increase the number of accessible wilderness experiences at boat-in and hike-in campsites.
  • Expand park infrastructure.
  • Test a campground reservation system.
  • Develop a Parks System Plan.
