Campgrounds in the Yukon Territory
The Yukon River Campground, operated by Yukon Parks, is located across the river from Dawson City, at the start of the Top of the World Highway. The largest campground in the Yukon, it has 102 campsites, 20 of them pull-throughs. It also has tent-camping and group camping areas, and several kitchen shelters. The nightly fee at the Yukon River Campground, as at all Yukon Parks campgrounds, is $12, and includes firewood. It is a short ferry ride into Dawson (the ferry is free), and a short walk down the river bank takes you to the Sternwheeler Graveyard.
The Yukon River Campground is open and fully serviced from May 19 until September 11 (in 2017). It is not gated in the off-season, though, and can be used. Snow is not plowed, and all campers must register (no fee), bring their own toilet paper and firewood, and pack out their garbage.
