We called late, and arrived later. The Swiss man running the camp told me he had a site we could use that he saved for people who are late to register. It was private, easy to back into, and very quiet. Showers were a decent size with great water pressure. It was a quick run into Whitehorse in the morning to restock supplies. If we ever make to the Yukon, we will stay here again. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed two nights on our way to Alaska and one night on our way back. Did not use the bathrooms or laundry but checked them out and they seemed clean to me. Owner was very helpful. The CG is fairly close to the highway but there are many trees to keep the traffic noise down. Plenty of room for walking our small dog. Very wooded in the back of the park. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A lovely fully shaded park. Proprietor is very helpful and accommodating. He helped us into our site. Called a repair man for windshield repair for us. Made lots of suggestions for things to do. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very tight and hard to get around,spaces are very close together, not big rig friendly. We were able to get our 40 foot motor home parked, but just barely. Our door opened onto the road and the table was on the other side. The park is further from town than we thought. We ended up leaving a day early and moving to another park closer to town. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good for an overnight stay only. They advertise WiFi but they don't have enough signal to access anything on the 'Net and they time you out quickly and then try to charge you for further access. Campsites are extremely narrow to the point that you can reach out your window and touch your neighbor. Zero privacy. Keep your blinds down! Won't go back. Place is for sale and it shows, as the owners don't care about your needs. AVOID! We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Truck Camper.

This was a nice park, but difficult to maneuver with our 36ft. rig and vehicle. Nice and quiet and lots of shade. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Staff is friendly. Once paid, firm on no refunds. Basic gravel roads and sites, relatively flat, water, 30 amp service, dump station. This campground is about a 15-minute drive from Whitehorse. It is quiet and a Good Sam park. They also offer a 15% senior discount. Recorded phone message says they cannot accept reservation over the phone.

There is a "For Sale" sign out front - hard to tell if the campground is for sale or the Wolf's Den restaurant which both use the same entrance drive (but don't eat at the Wolf's Den if you are allergic to smoke - the place reeks of it). We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

Take a narrow gauge railway train ride to Skagway via the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad (photographer'd dream), visit the Transportation Museum, eat at Klondike Ribs & Salmon Restaurant.

Very tight roads and sites. The park woods need some trimming. Really no complaints other than overcrowded. Park had a log cabin meeting pavilion with fireplace and couple of picnic tables to warm up and talk in the evening. The "Wolf's Den" restaurant on site is excellent and unique. Only stayed one night. Would we stay again? No. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because of the review in the Alaska Camping book. I would have to say it is overrated in that book, in my opinion. It is right on the highway. The really pretty sites in the woods are all tent sites, which is too bad for us, nice for tent campers. The RV sites are mostly all in a big gravel parking lot, but there are a few that back up to the highway, but are in the trees. We chose one of those and because we have a front bedroom, we were not bothered by highway noise at all. The gentleman who runs the place was somewhat gruff with us. We asked for help with the Wi-Fi and he seemed annoyed. Some sites have TV hookups and many do not. It has a wash station for RVs but it wasn’t working when we were there. We did enjoy a meal at the Wolf Den attached to the park. I guess we were expecting more from the park, given the great review. We were somewhat disappointed, and the next day, moved. We had planned a two night stay but only stayed one night. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great little park. We used it on the way back from Alaska; wish we would have used it on the way in! Front desk was very nice and explained what was available. Water and 30amp, plus excellent Wi-Fi. They do have cable but we were also able to pick up satellite. Did NOT have to disconnect. I would recommend this park over others in Whitehorse. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park has potential but needs a little help. The roads are narrow because of the trees and has tight turns. The pull through sites are long enough but they are hard to turn into and get out of because they are so close to the neighbors. The owner is a gentleman from Sweden who plays the accordion at about 9:30 pm which is a little late for some people who want to get up and out the next day. Sites and roads are gravel. There is an RV wash on site. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is probably one of the better parks in the Whitehorse area, but that is not saying much. We camped in pull through site number 9 which was long enough for our rig and truck but quite unlevel. Site widths are extremely narrow - too close to our neighbors. There is only water and electric at the site and a dump station. There are trees in the park which give you a better feel than some of the other parks which are ugly crowded parking lots. The park is about 15 miles from Whitehorse near the Skagway turnoff. Wi-Fi seemd to work OK. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is for 30 amp with water pull thru. Gravel roads and pads are narrow with branches in need of trimming. Dump station is aligned to used only as you exit the park. Wi-Fi worked, then it didn't work, then it did, though when it worked it was fast. For a visit to Whitehorse is a long drive, so the park is best for a one night stop over. Apparently many people stop just to eat at the restaurant located beside the RV park. After one night we moved closer to town. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is a nice park with shaded pull through sites. The managers were excellent - even agreed to let our dog out for a walk while we went to Skagway. They have good rates and are welcoming. We would recommend it. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground was clean and fairly well maintained. The interior roads are gravel and in good shape. The pull-thru sites are gravel and they are fairly level. There are quite a few trees but not as many in the pull-thru area. The bathrooms and laundry were very clean. The owner was friendly and helpful. There are no sewer hookups but they have a convenient dump station. The pull-thru sites are narrow. It's about a 15 minute drive into town which is not inconvenient and contributes to the peaceful ambiance of this campground. There is some road noise although it's not too bad. There is a restaurant within easy walking distance that has excellent food. The Wi-Fi is excellent and the cable TV has about 3 stations. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Caribou RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
