Best views we had on our trip. Beautiful setting overlooking the Kluane Lake. Skip the resorts and camp here. Level back-in sites in a circle most of which face the lake. Well spaced with trees in-between. Short trails to lakeside. Quiet. Has pit toilets, picnic tables, fire pits. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Chose a site on lake side for great views. Provincial park fire pits are half-barrels so they block the heat available.

This territorial park is beautiful and provides scenic views of Kluane Lake. Lots of room between sites. Grizzly bear was within yards of the campground so take care when walking along the shoreline of the lake. Pit toilets are maintained and clean. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Truly one of the most beautiful campgrounds I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. On the shores of Kluane Lake and surrounded by glaciated mountains. Sites back up to the lake and are private, surrounded by trees. Perfect. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

This is a stunningly beautiful Yukon Government campground on massive Kluane Lake. For the $12 nightly fee you get a huge site, unlimited firewood, and spotlessly clean outhouses. There are 8 sites on the lake, 31 more in the forest, about 1/3 of which are pull-throughs. The beach offers great walking for miles in either direction, and an old abandoned section of the campground adjacent to the east has a very nice interpretive trail. Tenting is no longer allowed due to problems with grizzly bears. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice Yukon Government Campground on beautiful Kluane Lake. As with all Yukon Government Campgrounds there is no dump station. There is water from a hand pump, but would not be useful for filling a tank, so plan to bring whatever water you need and haul out whatever water you use. There is free campfire wood: a nice touch. There are pit toilets. There are a few campsites along the lake and many more in the trees away from the lake. When we were here, no tent camping was allowed because of bear activity. We did see a bear along the road a couple of miles from the campground, but did not see any bear activity in the campground. The campground is very convenient to the Alaska Highway, but far enough away that we did not have any highway noise. We did not have any signal on our Verizon phone. Most sites would not have satellite access, but we did have one of the few where we could get a signal through the trees for our Hughes internet satellite. We loved our stay here and would definitely stay here again. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Stated we would not use the dump so $2 was deducted from the $32 rate. Somewhat of a challenge to get cord in the 15 amp service. We got a pull-through overlooking the lake. Office has some canned goods if you are completely out. Free Wi-Fi on the deck. However, there are two SSIDs the same so it is hard to tell which one works. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

Tents are not always allowed because of a habituated grizzly bear. She is an aggressive bear. Do not approach. Maintain a BARE campsite at all times. Do not leave animals out or alone. Do not leave food unattended. We did have an encounter with the bear. Brush control has been completed which removed a significant number of the berries she was foraging on in the campsite. The campsite is clean and well maintained. There are about 10 lake side sites and numerous treed sites. Free fire wood. The pit toilets were clean. Good value. We would stay here again.

No facilities here but pit toilets, but oh, the beautiful view! Not all the sites face the lake, so get here early for one of them. Free firewood is provided with site. The sites are nicely graveled. Do bring mosquito repellant. The morning we left, a grizzly ambled through the playground. It munched some greens - bothered no one – and left after being much-photographed. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

A great, no frills provincial park. Free firewood but you need to split the logs. Not true waterfront sites but just a short walk to the lake. Has hiking trails. Tents are not allowed in late summer due to bears but we did see a couple. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.

A true Gem along the Alaska highway. Along Kluane Lake and the Great Destruction Bay area. Located approximately at the 1666.1 km marker. About 1/4 mile off the highway. Well signed. Many pull through sites. Many big rig sites (ours is 45' and we had no issues). Some water front sites. One of the very best campgrounds on our entire 4 month journey to Alaska. We would highly recommend. We camped at Congdon Creek Campground (Yukon Government) in a Motorhome.
