by Murray Lundberg


Campgrounds and Rest Areas in the Yukon Territory

    This large paved rest area is located at Km 354.4 of the North Klondike Highway, 1.4 km south of the village of Carmacks. It has outhouses, garbage bins, interpretive panels, and a visitor information centre (which is seldom open).

    The kilometer posts on the North Klondike Highway mark the mileage from the ferry terminal in Skagway, Alaska. Dawson City, the north end of the highway, is at Km 715.4.
