A new way to camp in 2022 – new fees, rules and online payment option

Starting May 1st, individuals will be able to pay online for daily campground permits that can be used at all Yukon Government road-accessible campgrounds. Pre-paid paper permits will also be available from vendors. To encourage cash-less registration onsite, both will be at a reduced rate ($18 regular/$9 Yukon resident senior (65+) vs $20 regular/$10 Yukon resident senior for onsite cash payment). These do not reserve sites. Self-registration is still on a first come, first serve basis, onsite.

Other changes include:

  • Registration is now per site, not per accommodation unit
  • All campsite use requires self-registration – day or night, year-round
  • Camping season has been extended to May 1 through September 30
  • A Park Use Permit application fee of $40
  • A backcountry campsite booking fee for Tombstone Territorial Park
  • A maximum number of people per campsite: 8 (regular site); 5 (tenting only site); 12 (group site). Campers may host more visitors at their site during the day.
  • Increased servicing to support winter recreation at key sites. Services include cleared parking, maintained outhouses and packed trails or ski tracks.

As before, no camping fees are charged between October 1 and April 30.

These changes result from new regulations affecting territorial parks and campgrounds, and originated in the Yukon Parks Strategy.
