We think this is the park to stay when in Dawson City. Sites are level and there is room for everyone to be comfortable, even if side-by-side. The managers/hosts are all very friendly and helpful; full of information about the area. There is a small book exchange in the laundry room; books can be purchased for a donation to KIVA. We left our motorhome here for the 4 days it took to drive to Inuvik, NWT and back. Management worked with us to allow a move into a electric only site to keep our refrigerator and freezer working, and to return to a full-hookup site upon our return. We highly recommend this park to anyone visiting the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have said, this is basically a gravel/dirt parking lot. We had no problems with the water/sewer/electricity, but the Wi-Fi might as well been non-existent. One of the workers at the campground came around one morning and told us to make sure we told the managers about the Wi-Fi, and when I went to the office, the manager jumped all over me as if it were my fault. I would stay somewhere else if I ever visit Dawson City again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a big gravel and dirt "park". Our site was adequate and level. Hookups were good. I got Wi-Fi on my better computer; my wife got intermittent WiFi; it was slow because there are no high speed lines in Dawson City (was told they stopped about 100 miles short of the area). It could get dusty - at one very windy point, I tried to point out the office to someone who had come in the back way, but I could not see it. Staff here was very friendly and helpful. There was no cell phone reception and I had to make a work-related conference call, so they set me up with a land line in an empty motel room (charged to a phone card) and it worked very well. Then we parked for two additional nights (for $10) while we took our toad up the Dempster highway. The physical experience was only adequate, but they were so nice, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is not much more than a gravel pit full of potholes and weeds. The sites are very narrow, when slides are out, almost touching the next van. Wi-Fi is extremely limited and slow and they do not tell you upon check in that it is capped and once you use your quota for the day it is not reset until 2 pm the following day. Very inconvenient. Overpriced for what you get. Nobody seems to care about the appearance of the place. There is a good vehicle wash $ which is handy after traversing the dirt roads to here. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not use our motorhome in Dawson City instead we used the motel service at the Bonanza Gold Motel and RV park. This may be a family friendly park but there were no playgrounds and I did not read anything about activities. There was Wi-Fi internet service but it was very slow. Management turns the service off at night around 9:00pm and if they think about it, they will turn it back on around 7:00am, and this was only after receiving calls from a number of visitors. They also regulate how much you can use the internet. If you are a family with more then one computer, do not expect much usage time and they will not reset you usage until 11:00am the next day. They do have laundry service but I felt that the wash room was dirty, a lot of broken machines, washers and dryers. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
Large park is right on highway. It felt like camping in a vacant lot. Wi-Fi was a poor signal when we received one at all. Vehicle wash is a nice convenience. Potable water fill was just a few feet from dump station and its hose probably gets used to rinse sewer connections. Okay stop if you like waking early to truckers from the motel side warming their engines up. Wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It's parking lot camping, but they do a pretty good job of it. Sites are adequately sized, all the amenities work well. Multiple Wi-Fi systems, so available at our site, even though we're in the "back forty". Good two-station RV/Truck wash. I didn't time it, but 5 Loonies buys a lot of high pressure hose time. Friendly, helpful management. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good basic gravel campground with easy access to the various points of interest around Dawson City. The site we were in was ample width and length for our 38 foot motorhome and Jeep. They had just installed a brand new Wi-Fi system and warned us that there may still be bugs in it and to let them know if we had any problems. It worked great and was very reliable. We were there for five nights and never had any problems with it. The cable TV worked good too. It was quiet at night; some traffic noise during the day, but not bad. The office staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to see and directions to get there. They have gold pans and shovels you can borrow if you want to pan for gold. There is a car/RV wash available with high pressure hoses to wash off the Yukon mud after a day of exploring -- worked great. There is also an auto repair shop right across the street that we found necessary to use. It was very handy. Be sure to take in a show at the Diamond Tooth Gerties Saloon. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Your basic "parking lot" one finds in the north with back-ins, some tight. Another place that lies about their Wi-Fi services - limited to certain hours. Of course, every one tries to get on at those times, so no one gets on. Good Sam REALLY has to consider adding another rating category for Wi-Fi as does RV Park Reviews. We've stayed at a lot of places this trip that have falsely advertised, charged extra, or the system just did not work. And caution when you read "Wi-Fi Accessible" - translation is you pay. Questionable we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Bonanza Gold provides full hookups, including Wi-Fi. Site size and maneuverability were very adequate. Wi-Fi disappeared repeatedly and access codes changed at least daily with no warning. The open gravel layout amplified the background noise from the road and near constant activity within the park. The rate was for 30 amps, full hookups and includes a Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Typical northern park. It is a carpark. Sites are tight. Rate is high for what is offered but this is as good as it gets in the area. WiFi was weak and only available near the motel building. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was completely gravel and caliche and full of potholes upon arrival. This material gets very messy when it rains. However, repairs of the potholes were undertaken during our stay. Services were adequate at our full-hookup site. This is by no means a pretty park, but it appears to have much more space than the other Dawson City CG. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for FHU 50 amp back-in site, discounted to the 30 amp rate. They were expecting a large caravan and so gave us a 50 amp site for the price of a 30 amp to keep some 30 amp sites available to those who needed them. Interior is dusty, but after checking out the other parks in town, they are all like this. By the way, even the streets in town are dusty as they are all a very fine gravel except for the Klondike Highway. Great attitude by the front desk person even though she was obviously extremely busy. Wi-Fi worked well even though the park was mostly full, and that was despite warnings that it might be a little iffy. Great park and we gladly stay here again. Note to reviewer: The Guggieville RV Park is now part of Bonanza Creek. The Guggieville website doesn't work anymore, while The Bonanza Creek website shows, "incorporating Guggieville". Bonanza bought Guggieville and currently uses the old area which next door to Bonanza for overflow only according to the Bonaza manager. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large full-service park just outside Dawson City, with all-gravel interior roads and sites. Most sites are back-ins that are large enough for big rigs of all types. 50 amp power is available, and there is free Wi-Fi and a coin-operated car/rig wash station. Friendly and helpful office staff. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a convenient campground to the town. It is on top of tailings-I expected gravel but the surface is more of a powdery white dust. We had a back-in site and a big rig but there is plenty of room to manuveur. There is adequate space between sites but nothing really between the sites but dust. There are a few trees scattered around the area. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were clean but we didn't use the showers which cost extra and were a little expensive. There is a convenient restaurant next door-an easy walk. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The good news was the staff was friendly and helpful. Although our back-in site provided little space between campers, we had plenty of length to maneuver. The laundry area was clean. Their Wi-Fi was just ok. Unfortunately this park's interior roads where filled with large pot holes. We would look for a different campground if in the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had made a reservation for a pull-through site and confirmation said they would try. Caravan was coming in the 2nd day of our stay and had all the pull-through sites taken. The back in site we were given worked for our 33 foot 5th wheel but the sites are right on top of each other with the neighbor's sewer connection right outside our trailer door. The sites are not angled so they are not very easy to get into. There was a good main entrance road but the other road to the park was full of large potholes. When it rains the sandy dirt becomes very muddy. There was good cable but the Wi-Fi leaves a great deal to be desired. We were told at check in it is good for only checking e-mails. I was able to get on to the Wi-Fi for the adjacent Dawson RV Park when the one for this park was not available to access the internet. We have stayed at 2 other parks in Dawson City and this one is no better nor no worse. If we were to return we would not stay here. We would once again stay at Gold Rush which is downtown and walking distance to most everything. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A very nice park that also has an RV/car wash located on its property, which after coming across the Top of the World Highway was very helpful. The lady at the desk was most helpful in recommending something to do in Dawson City and we listened to what she suggested and enjoyed our short visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not sure of rate, we were part of a caravan. We were in the area off to the side and not near the motel. Wi-fi did not reach the sites here. Site ok but nothing special. Dawson City was great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy wide open park. It now has a few 50 amp sites and from them the Wi-Fi is solid and free. Showers and RV wash all are a dollar for 4 minutes. That's why the lower rating as that seems a little high for not much time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Sites were ample. Close to attractions in Dawson. WiFi was intermittent, but when working was fairly fast. Excellent cable TV. The campground needed more trash bins. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here four nights. The staff was friendly and gave helpful information on the attractions in the area. The sites are of ample length and width to be comfortable, with some small trees between the sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
"Sister" park with Guggeville RV. Strong, free WiFi and much more "elbow room" than the RV park in town. Only 1.5 miles to town so it's walkable if you want. Be sure to take the 15 minute drive to the top of Midnight Dome for a GREAT view of the valley and town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a basic RV Park with some back in spots and some side by side pull thrus. In the back in sites hook ups are to the rear and everything works fine. It is dirt but so is everything in Dawson City due to Permafrost. This is the Yukon. You don't get any better. The owners and staff are fantastic. The park is right in Dawson City within walking distance to everything. And it is a wonderful city to see with many fun things to do. We had planned on staying for two or three days and ended up staying a week. There is lots to do and see. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We really enjoyed our stay in Dawson City and the convenience of this RV Park was part of the reason. It is right down town 3 blocks from the Visitor Centre. The office staff is friendly and courteous. The showers are clean and well arranged with private dressing areas, but they do cost $1.50. The laundry is outrageously expensive - $5 for a washer. The price we paid is for only 15A service. This park gets very busy in the summer months so reservations might be a necessary. It is not a pretty park, has very little greenery, and the sites are tightly spaced. However, the location is great. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gravel parking lot, with all hookups at rear of lot. Located in town, easy access to everything on foot. Not worth the price however by any means. But this is the Yukon and they have to make their money during the 4 month tourist season. So everything in town is about 2 times the price it should be. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good park for what you get. Bathrooms/showers are very clean, buildings are well-kept, services work, nice to have cable when you're up here in this hinterland. We felt it was a little pricey for being a "parking lot", albeit well organized and presented as well as possible for what they have, but that comes with the territory in a tourist town in the Yukon. Neighborhood houses had some pretty loud guests one night ... I think alcohol was involved. For doing Dawson, it is about as good as you can get. The other parks in town appear to be pretty much the same caliber. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This RV park is the most cramped park I've ever stayed at. It took several attempts at parking our rig to avoid hitting the awning of our neighbor. When finally parked our steps encroached on our other neighbors territory. There is only 1 men's toilet. They use Tengo Internet which gets disabled for you 4 hours after you initially connect. With the park 1/2 full we had trouble staying connected. Most sites are 15 amp back ins with no circuit breaker. The best part about this park is it's location as once you're parked you don't need a vehicle. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sardine style RV park. Kept having to move my tow vehicle when a neighbor came in. Side by side hookups and very poor Wi-Fi. Manager was friendly but not very personable. I've RVed over 40 years and this was the most packed-in RV park I've ever seen or been in. $1.75/liter diesel nearby so don't show up on empty. Park has all the "amenities" like cable, Wi-Fi, hookups, etc. but the straight in parking lot ruined the whole thing for me. Less than a foot space between my slide and the neighbor's. There were a couple parks outside of town I would go to first. The town should be ashamed of this park as it's a blatant gouging of RVers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nothing more than a gravel parking lot with not even enough room between sites to put out our awning without touching rig next door. We have never camped in such a cramped RV park. We estimate that the spaces are not more than 12' wide. Very poor Wi-Fi. Owner/managers could care less. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Gold Rush was a nice campground in Dawson City. It was very conveniently located in the middle of town so that campers could walk around town and back to the campground. As in most Canadian parks there were metered showers, an irritation to many people. It would seem to be better to charge an extra dollar amount on the camping fee to include the shower and NOT charge EXTRA for a shower. Many people consider a shower as a basic to be included in the cost of the camping fee. People who own/manage the park were there and involved, offering suggestions for trips, etc. The internet was "iffy" and was only able to be used for basic e-mails and even then was difficult to use when the park was full. Overall, however, this was still a very nice park. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is a typical Alaska/Yukon gravel pit. The sites are all gravel with pull-thru down the middle and back in's around the perimeter. This is the only park in downtown Dawson City, which makes it nice as you can walk to many of the attractions. Our site wasn't very level and you are close to your neighbor but other than that an OK site. The owners are friendly and do try to help make your visit worthwhile. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Campground staff said they had a full hookup site, but it was only water and electric with a dump. Power tripped off a couple of times. RV wash next to campground, but it was out of service when I could have used after driving through the mud of the Dempster highway. Lodge has a restaurant and store on site as well. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is the first one that is located on the Dempster Highway within the Tombstone Territorial Park in the Yukon Territory. Without a doubt it was the most beautiful scenery that we found in the Yukon Territory. The mountain vistas were absolutely stunning, epic, and inspiring. The campground is like one that a person would find in a U.S. Forest Service campground. Stay here for access to magnificent country and a quiet, calm campground. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is an incredible non-serviced campground. You can't reserve here, but there are over 90 sites so even though we arrived in the evening, there were lots of sites, (most of the sites right along the Yukon River were taken, though). Sites are large and flat and very private, especially those not along the river. There are about 20 pull thru sites, (although sometimes the tenters choose them), but most other sites were very easy to access off the wide main road. The picnic tables are huge and in excellent condition. There is free fire wood at several covered bins throughout the campground, and the pit toilets were incredibly clean and newly painted. Especially if you stay in one of the first camp sites, you are within walking distance to Dawson City via the George Black Ferry (free for vehicles, RVs and foot passengers). We thought having to take the ferry might be a real pain, but it was quick, convenient, fun for the kids, and FREE! At far end of the campground, walk along the river past the campground to explore the Paddle Wheeler grave yard, where the remains of several boats and barges from the Paddle wheel era have been left to die. This was an excellent camping experience and an incredible bargain at $12/nite. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Another great Yukon territorial campground, many sites right on the Yukon River, appropriately clean vault toilets, free firewood, great price. The plus here is that you don't have to wait in line for the ferry in the morning if you are headed west over the Top of the World Highway because you're already on the west side of the Yukon. I'd recommend for an overnight and an early start going west. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
This is another nice provincial park, its across the Yukon River from Dawson City. If you can't be right in the very close spaced parks in Dawson City, take the ferry across the river, its free and runs all the time. The sites are large and level and nicely shaded. Firewood is provided and free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
