5 Parks near Dawson City, Yukon
Aug 2015 - $39.00
This is an OK park a couple of miles outside Dawson City. Fortunately it was not crowded when we were here so we had plenty of room. The sites are close together and small but acceptable. The hookups were fine except every other site had hookups on the passenger side of the coach and for whatever reason the office staff uses those first. We had to go back and ask to move to the empty site next to us to get hookups on the correct side. We stayed here in a motorhome for 3 nights and on the last night someone came in and they were put right next to us so their hookups were on the wrong side. Again there were many empty spaces so there was no need to do this. All utilities worked good. Wifi worked OK but was an extra charge. We would stay here again. - RayN

We have stayed at two parks in Dawson and this is the better park. WiFi is not great, but is usable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Bath house is clean.
On the negative the gravel is very dusty and the sites are quite crowded. Shade on some sites, but not many. No features to separate the lots. - Tom-MNAK

It seems common that the RV parks in Dawson, like many other cities, take full advantage of every foot of real estate to maximize rental space. We were packed in so tight that we could just extend our slides and that was it. The dog in the next site, occupied by a seasonal guest, was chained so that we had to ask that his tether be shortened so that we could get our dog in and out of the coach. For 3 days it wasn't a problem. If we had planned on staying a week it would have become an issue. The basics were all functional; good water, sewer and 30 amp power were fine. Cable TV was excellent but the property, over all, was not in the best of condition. We did visit the downtown RV park and it was in much the same state. In Dawson, this is how things work. The staff was less than friendly. Be sure you get the conversion rate!! - Beech35p

Basically this is an RV parking lot. The biggest plus is that you are right in town and can walk to restaurants, bars, shops and sites. Dawson City is a funky place....lots of young, free spirited people. Dirt streets and lots of old, closed buildings. On top of the nightly rate, you have to pay $2 for a shower. Some sites had tables. Not ours. Glad we only had two in our party. If you want to be close to the action, stay here. - Wyboo

Friendly and helpful staff. Park is a big gravel parking lot with hookups. Sites very close to each other. All utilities worked fine. No TV available, but satellite might work on the west side. Wi-Fi worked, but was slow. Walking distance to most of Dawson City. Due to convenience would probably stay here again if ever again in the area. - Onemoretrail

Basically a huge parking lot with rv hookups. Very friendly, helpful staff. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. Laundry was good. Sites very close together. Camped here in a pickup camper. - Sharlou

This park is a short distance from Dawson City. It's very quiet and a good place to stop if you are planning to board the ferry across the Yukon the next day. Sites are good sized and the park ranger is very friendly and helpful. Firewood is provided by the Yukon Government at no cost. Campground is open from May through September. - Bobbi1948

Love love love this campground!
Being a government campground, it was very basic, but we expected that and we were quite self-sufficient in our truck camper for the 4 nights we stayed there. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table, and there was FREE FIREWOOD! There were several vault toilets around the camp ground, all in very good condition, very clean and not smelly! River water was available from a tap - boil before consuming.
There are around 36 sites, on a first-come-first-served basis. We arrived mid week, and had no problem finding a site. By the weekend there were campers in the overflow areas and in the parking lot of the interpretive center. As a result, I'd recommend a mid-week stay during the peak season, and try not too arrive too late in the day.
A short walk to the interpretive center, where staff were friendly and super helpful in recommending hikes for us. Free activities most evenings.
A great place to base yourself for some peace and quiet, and access to some of the most amazing wilderness you'll ever find. We plan on spending at least a week here next time. - AAnnie

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. - Pat Eastes

Excellent park with free firewood and located on Klondike River. No elect or water but we didn't require this. You can't find a better campground or better attendants. - camperme

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. - Family_Tripster_05

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. - Bob & Bonnie
