    This summer we had the opportunity to stay in 5 different campground operated by the Yukon government:
    Tombstone Mountain- km 71.5 on the Dempster Highway
    Yukon River- Directly across the Yukon River from Dawson City on the Top of the World Highway
    Watson Lake- approximately 5 miles off the Alaska Highway near km 984
    Big Creek- km 1042 on the Alaska Highway
    Pine Lake- km 1572 on the Alaska Highway
    All of the campgrounds were clean and well kept. No hookups, which we like. :) Vault toilets were exceptionally clean. $10 per night. Free firewood. At some campgrounds boiling of drinking water was recommended. We have nothing but praise for the Yukon government campgrounds we stayed at. [ALPU]

    I was rereading my post and noted an error. After checking our journal, Yukon government campgrounds are $12 per night, not $10 as previously posted.

    We stayed at the Watson Lake Territorial campground at the end of July. It was very clean and very quiet! The site we had was huge, and the firewood was free. It's still 12$ a night. :)
