      Enjoy our Yukon
Highways...
Stunning scenes, historic routes
and open roads greet thousands of drivers in Yukon each year. Normally, visitors come from all over the world to explore this spectacular region.
With nearly 5,000 kilometers (over 3,000 miles) of public highways across remote landscapes and through diverse climate conditions,
there are unique challenges in maintaining such a transportation network. But the men and women
of the Department of Highways
and Public Works are up to the task. They are responsible for building, maintaining, monitoring and clearing those roads. They deal with paved surfaces (350km), Bituminous Surface Treatment or BST (2,000km) and gravel roads (2,500km). The hard work of crews help ensure your summer travels are safe - so that you can enjoy an unparalleled experience
as you cross carpets of tundra or watch as epic mountain ranges engulf the scenery around you.
While enjoying all the North has
to offer, please be mindful of construction zones, observe posted speed limits and be cautious of wildlife on the highway or in the right-of-way.
For current road report information, including closures, 24 hours a

  THE SIGNPOST FOREST, WATSON LAKE
The World Famous Sign Post Forest is Watson Lake’s best known attraction. The forest was started in 1942 by
a homesick U.S. Army G.I., Carl K. Lindley of Danville, Il., Company D, 341st Engineers. While working on the Alaska Highway, he erected a sign here pointing the way and stating the mileage to his hometown. Others followed his lead and are still doing so to this day. On July 20, 1990,
Olen and Anita Walker of Bryan, Ohio placed the 10,000th sign. Carl K. Lindley and his wife visited the site in 1992, 50 years after his first post was erected. Today, the Town of Watson Lake maintains the site, erecting more posts as they are needed. The signpost forest is designated as an official Yukon Historic Site.
  Yukon Campgrounds & RV Parks Welcome Yukoners
 In community and rural settings throughout the Yukon, travellers will find a network of designated public and private campgrounds and RV parks. Visitors are reminded that roadside pull-offs and gravel pits are not appropriate camping spots.
While private camping facilities offer many of the typical amenities, government campgrounds usually offer the basics such as picnic tables, campfire pits, firewood, picnic shelters, outhouses and hand-pumped water. Government campgrounds do not have dumping stations or facilities for filling fresh water tanks. If your RV is 12 metres (36 feet) or less, you should be able to drive the loops and turn around with little difficulty. If your RV is longer or unusually wide, you may need to use more caution when maneuvering the loop roads.
Most of the campgrounds have pull-throughs and the newer campgrounds are being designed with longer back-in sites.
A daily camping permit is required to stay at all government campgrounds. Campers can purchase daily campground permits ($12 per
night) on-site at Yukon government campgrounds. Pre-paid camping permits can also be bought at most service stations, highway lodges, retail stores, liquor stores (outside Whitehorse) and at Department
of Environment offices. Annual camping permits are only available to local residents.
Please remember to practice wood conservation when you have a campfire. Trees take a much longer time to grow in this northern climate and are too valuable to waste. All water from pumps, lakes or streams should be treated or boiled to reduce the risk of waterborne bacteria.
Please remember that dumping your sewage or grey water holding tanks in gravel pits or anywhere except a dump station is illegal. RV dump stations are listed on the back cover (page 32).
Camping is different during COVID-19. You need to be more self-contained.
REMINDERS
• No one can self-isolate in a territorial park or campground.
• Non-residents who are required by law to travel through Yukon within 24 hours cannot stay or stop in government-run campgrounds.
Yukon River Ferry Service
The George Black Ferry Service across the Yukon River connects Dawson City to the Top of the World Highway. This “no charge” government service, which accommodates large RVs without difficulty, operates on demand throughout the tourist season but closes for maintenance from 5 am to 7 am every Wednesday. Seasonal service begins as weather permits, usually no later than the third week of May. For accurate and up-to- date information about the ferry, please visit yukon511.ca or follow @511Yukon Twitter.
Is the campground open?
Yukon government campgrounds are serviced during the summer.
Daily camping fees are not required between October and April, but
you must register nightly.
