“Sandy, spacious camping area beside a crook in the Takhanne River with gorgeous mountain views”

Reviewed Aug 04, 2018

Overall Rating

Gravel road leading to area is short but has fairly deep potholes so you need to go super slow. The footing in the camping area is a mix of gravel, dirt and sand. If you scope the area out carefully, it is possible to avoid the deeper sand in case you have a heavier rig or 2wd only that might get you stuck. Lots of room for multiple rigs and you can camp right next to the river with beautiful towering mountain peaks to the south.

The water is clear and quiet with direct access. I saw a beaver swimming lazily downstream while I stopped by for just a few minutes. The river is perfect for tubing – you can float down the river in an inflatable – just be sure to jump out at the campground before you reach the Million Dollar Falls. Don’t worry it won’t be difficult and you could even walk back. Definitely check the falls out while you are here!

Location is set back a bit but still near the road and part of it is within view of the bridge that goes over the river so there will be some road noise. No cell signal here. Great spot for a wild camp overnight on your way down to Haines from Haines Junction. Enjoy!
