Fun, fresh air and a whole lot s’more

People who like camping, love camping in the Yukon. Pull off the highway into one of the dozens of government-operated campgrounds found throughout the Yukon. Some parts of the territory also have private RV parks and a few full-service campgrounds that offer everything from cold ice cream to hot showers. But that’s as close to glamping as Yukon camping gets—most wouldn’t have it any other way.

Wherever you choose to stay, you’ll find nature nearby, sometimes right outside your tent flap. At some sites, the sound of waves lapping a lakeshore might lull you to sleep. Set your alarm to “off” and wake to the sound of songbirds.

Some campgrounds have boat launches, swimming areas and small playgrounds, and most have trails for exploring the natural surroundings. Keep your camera handy and check out the various plants and wildlife. With lots to do and see, and plenty of ways to relax, it’s easy to be a happy camper here.
