A Guide to Dezadeash Lake Campground, Yukon

by Murray Lundberg


Campgrounds in the Yukon Territory

    The Dezadeash Lake Campground, operated by Yukon Parks, is located at Km 195.7 of the Haines Highway. It has 20 campsites, none of them pull-throughs. It also has a boat launch and a kitchen shelter. The campground is well situated as a base for hiking several of the trails in Kluane National Park. The nightly fee at Dezadeash Lake Campground, as at all Yukon Parks campgrounds, is $12, and includes firewood.

    Dezadeash Lake 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.
