by Murray Lundberg


Campgrounds & Rest Areas in the Yukon Territory

    The Big Creek Campground, operated by Yukon Parks, is located at Km 1042.2 of the Alaska Highway. It has 15 campsites, 7 of them pull-throughs. It also has a kitchen shelter. The nightly fee at Big Creek Campground, as at all Yukon Parks campgrounds, is $12, and includes firewood.

    Big Creek Campground is open and fully serviced from May 18 until September 9 (in 2018). 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.
