“Another great Yukon Government Campground”

Reviewed Sep 27, 2018

Overall Rating

We have stayed twice at the Congdon Creek Campground that is along the Alaska Highway. This is a great stop for a stay along Kluane Lake on the Yukon, and inside of Destruction Bay. We use it as a stop on our trips from Alaska in the Fall, unfortunately the gates are closed on our return trips in the spring. Not to worry however as there are plenty of free spots to stay along the lake, especially on its South Eastern side. We don't mind paying the $12CAD for our stays at Congdon or the other YGCG's as the sites are always clean, level, and come with all the firewood you can burn. $12 Canadian converts to $9.31 at the time of my review. During your stay at Congdon be sure to walk the shores of this very large lake, explore the old part of the campground beyond the tent enclosure road, and look for bears which I still have not found although I'm sure they are around. There is a children's playground, but be careful as the ground has some angle twisting holes made by animals. If you want solitude then camp in the section of campground in the wooded area, as the areas near the beach are the most popular. I recommend getting there early in the day before others are off the road, if you want the best spots near the water, or one of the larger spots for larger RV's. This campground has spots that will handle any size RV, although its not unexpected for the smallest of RVs to take the largest of spots. Near by Destruction Bay does have cell service, and with a booster it may be possible to get connected, but I highly doubt it, possibly that may change in the future.

After planning to drive further but having to deal with horrible wind, we decided to pull up at Congdon Creek. Though Kluane was still mostly frozen , the campground is in s lovely setting with ample spaces near lakeshore and others in trees. No hookups or cell reception but would definitely stay again

Camping the Yukon - RV Like Midgley

​We ended up really enjoying our stay in the Yukon. We stayed at several campgrounds run by the Yukon government. All of which were immaculately tended to.  Most of them were located next to a sizable...
