Campgrounds and Rest Areas in the Yukon Territory
This large gravel rest area is located at Km 655.2 of the North Klondike Highway. It has outhouses, garbage bins, and interpretive panels.
When the weather is good, the Tintina Trench viewpoint is a must-stop. One of the interpretive panels explains: "Beneath the Tintina Trench is a fault line along which the bedrock has shifted a minimum of 450 km laterally. Some 65 million years ago, the rocks presently beneath Dawson City were adjacent to those of Ross River! About 8 million years ago, the earth’s crust separated along the fault, creating a wide valley or trench."
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.
