Site description:

Across the river from Dawson City.

A popular campground and the largest in Yukon.

Enjoyed by residents and visitors for its proximity to town and access to a beach and the sternwheeler graveyard.

You can get to the campground by a free ride on the George Black Ferry from mid-May to mid-October.

Look for and learn about Peregrine Falcons at the viewing deck overlooking the Yukon River (Chu Kon’ Dëk). The river's Hän name means "sparkling water river."
