Best campground on our trip to Alaska. Hosts were totally accommodating, facilities were beautiful. It's a remote camp along Kluane Lake but it was the nicest night of our trip. We had a primitive no hookup site with our door opening toward and overlooking the lake. Hoping to stay again for a night or two on the way back home. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

One of the nicest RV parks in the Yukon. Managers are incredibly friendly and accomodating. The grounds and showers are immaculate. The views breathtaking. This park, however does require some concessions from it's guests. Electric is 110-15amp so care needs to be taken when running devices. Sites do not have sewer hookup but there is a dump station. Due to an active bear population, there are no trash bins in the park. Trash must be taken off site to one of several places. There is no TV but the office has a large selection of DVD's to borrow. Wi-Fi is fair-good from the patio.There is no laundryroom. Sites are all gravel, level and spacious. All sites have an incredible view of Kluane Lake. There are a few other parks in Destruction Bay, but none are nearly as nice as Cottonwood. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice campground in an absolutely beautiful spot along the shore of Destruction Bay. The owners are clearly proud of their park as the grounds are spotless. We had an electric only site and only 15 amp service but since the weather was cool we really didn't require AC at all other than to make coffee in the morning. (easier than the percolator) There was WiFi available but it was quite slow even with my booster, but considering where we were... All in all a great place to stay. We would have stayed longer had we not been anxious to get on to Alaska. We will stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wow! This was a lovely RV park, lovingly cared for and maintained. Grass and flowers graced the entire property. Our site #28 was right on the edge of the beautiful Kluane Lake, a huge undeveloped area of the Yukon. Absolutely gorgeous. Excellent wifi reception, fairly roomy sites and quiet. They only have 15 amp power but we managed just fine. It was hard to leave and we plan on staying there again on our way home from Alaska. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Although this park offers a nice view of Kluane Lake it is expensive for what you get. 15 amp electric, water, and Wi-Fi, but only at the office area and it seems only on when the office is open. I would not stay here again mainly due to the price. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are planning to take this route to or from Alaska I would reconsider. The road from Destruction Bay to Beaver Creek is a mess and that's being nice. It took us 3.5 hours to drive 99 miles due to the road condition. The people in Beaver Creek told us it the worst they've seen that road in 50 years. I definitely will not be going back that way. other RVers have told me the road from Dawson City to Chicken is a better road to take.

Thoroughly enjoyed this gem along Kluane Lake. Many personalized touches by the owners make this a special place. Grizzlies known to frequent area so take care. Washroom were excellent as was the fresh water quality. You have to pack out your trash which is no big deal. Would certainly return to this campground again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

35$ for a dry site sounds like an insanity, but we did it for the million dollar views and were glad to have made the decision.
Not all sites are worth that money in our opinion. The hookup sites are side by side, offering no privacy at all. Most of the dry sites are right on the lake, some are large back ins and, like ours, separated by shrubs from the next site. Better walk around and have a look first before signing in for a particular site. The park is right off the highway but there is very little traffic anyway and none at night making for a good sleep.
WiFi only worked around the office. The restrooms and the showers both were immaculate. Dump station on the way out. Water fill spigot next to the office.
We will stay again but only when the weather allows to enjoy the gorgeous views. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Tips for other Campers:

The advice to take the road from Dawson City to Chicken to avoid the Beaver Creek construction zone instead is questionable. We found the top of the world highway between the boarder and Dawson to be an excellent dirt road, but the 50 km gravel section between Chicken and Wade Junction was much worse than the construction zone in the Beaver Creek area. The section Chicken - Tok is in no better shape than the highway in the Beaver Creek area.

This continues to be one of our favorite campgrounds. The grounds are full of trees and flowers. The sites are gravel but level. Because electricity is provided by park generators, you are limited to 15 amp service, but that was not a problem for us. You are asked to use only propane water heaters and and no electric space heaters. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Internet service is only available outside the main office. Be sure and bring everything you may need here--there is no place to purchase anything nearby. Because it is a bear sanctuary, there are no trash dumpsters. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Clean, pretty park right on Kluane Lake - great views of lake and mountains. Good gravel roads and fairly level, gravel sites with trees and shrubs in between. Water and 15-amp electric service (they're on a generator); and you must haul out your own garbage. Good pet-walk area. As long as we don't need to run the A/C, we would stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The best inland views of any park going to Alaska. Great hosts, clean park, flowers, and always working to make it more beautiful, This park is so well groomed, with great views of the lake, that I used a picture of it for my screen saver the last 3 years I worked. Stayed in a 42ft towing, and the owners made accommodations for our length. Certainly would stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice little park for an overnight stay. The diesel generator (they call it music) runs all night, but you get used to it. Most popular place was the circuit breaker boxes as people kept blowing their 15 amp circuits. Sites have water but no sewer (dump site on the way out). If you don't need any utilities they have some really nice sites away from everyone (and the noise). We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

In our entire Alaska adventure, this was our favorite campground. If you want peace and serenity after a day's driving, this is the place to stop. Because of the nature of it's surroundings they have some different rules---such as you carry your garbage out with you, and electric service is only 15 amp, because there is no electricity available to the entire property, just a very large generator.But the 15 amps, gets the job done. Wi-Fi will keep you connected, but simiply sitting by the most beautiful lake and mountains of Kluane will repair your soul. We stayed on our way up the Alaskan highway AND on the way back. Will stay here again next chance we get. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderful location, only 15 amp power available, with water and a dump station. Great, but popular, stop for those traveling the Alaska Hwy. Sites are fairly level, owners are very helpful, and ready to serve you, but don't walk on the grass. Facilities were clean and well kept for a seasonal campground in this area. Would highly recommend this campground for those traveling the Alaska Hwy. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Views across the lake and mountains all around make this a lovely setting. Roads and sites are gravel, with greenery between sites to give a bit of privacy and natural feel. Our site was electrical only, conveniently placed, 15 amp. They offered WiFi, but did not work when we were there, nor is there any cell phone service in the area, so enjoy the quiet! Bathrooms and showers were spotlessly clean, even if the shower stalls are a bit small. This park feels extra clean and neat overall, and the owners are quite pleasant (as long as you don't get him started on WiFi!). We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is one beautiful place! Unlike the previous reviews, I won't complain about the utilities. We were warned beforehand to switch our water heaters to propane instead of electricity. No problem. Limited WiFi, so what? Enough to check email. We had no problems with the electricity going off. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the grounds were spotless. The trash could be a problem, but not if you're careful and don't generate too much. We'll be staying here again on our way home from Alaska! We camped at Cottonwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
