Book early!!! Whitehorse's busy tourist season is very much concentrated in July and August. Airline, car rental, hotel, and campground reservations should all be made well in advance, if possible.
Many accommodation options are available (camping, hotel, motel, cabin, hostel, bed and breakfast, RV rental). Information on accommodation in the Yukon is available at www.travelyukon.com (aussi en Français) and www.yukoninfo.com.
For previous events we've had numerous requests for information on camping, so we've summarized here some of the camping available in and around Whitehorse. There is no pre-arranged camping for the NAOC or COC 2018.
See the map below for the campground locations.
Robert Service Campground
The best for tenting, this campground is located beside the Yukon River and is within walking distance of downtown.
"Located a short walk from downtown Whitehorse, our tenting-only campground can be accessed by Robert Service Way as well as the Millennium Trail. We offer 68 tent sites, equipped with a firepit and picnic table. Facilities include hot showers, clean bathrooms, firewood and a concession."
Hot Springs Campground and Hostel
This has good tenting. A 25 minute drive north of town, it's located at the Takhini Hot Springs. Benefit: warm springs for nice soaking. The Hot Springs Campground and Hostel is located just down the road from the Yukon Wildlife Preserve.
"Come and stay in our wilderness campground a 25-minute drive from downtown Whitehorse. Relax in our forested sites after a soak at the near by Takhini Hot Springs. New campground building open year-round."
