Find your “un” in Yukon’s undiscovered campgrounds

Yukon’s camping season is in full swing and finding the perfect spot for a weekend getaway can be a challenge. However, campers can find unoccupied campsites, uncrowded facilities, uncluttered scenery and uninterrupted relaxation in fully-serviced Yukon campgrounds that are worth the drive from Whitehorse.

The Government of Yukon’s undiscovered campgrounds campaign encourages campers to take the road less travelled to find their “un” in campgrounds across the territory. Road-tripping the extra distance offers high potential for unique experiences campers wouldn’t likely find at high-traffic destinations — which is ideal for those looking to experience all that summer in Yukon has to offer.


“Yukoners enjoy their open spaces. Our parks and campgrounds provide healthy opportunities to get outdoors and connect with nature, which helps improve our wellness as a community. We have 42 road-accessible campgrounds across the territory and this undiscovered campgrounds campaign aims to inspire, educate and encourage campers to go a little further to discover parts of the Yukon they may not have known existed before.”

–Minister of Environment Pauline Frost
