Congdon Creek Campground

Mile 1071 KM 1666 Alaska Hwy, Destruction Bay, YT Y0B 1H0

Date Visited June 2023


We paid: $20 CAD per night


Congdon Creek Provincial Park Campground is situated on the west shore of Kluane Lake among fir trees. Sites are first-come, first served (no reservations) and have no hookups. There are bear-proof trash cans and recycle bins and a water spigot (they tell you to boil your water for at least a minute before using).

We arrived with a full tank of fresh water and empty gray and black water tanks, so we were prepared. Nights were cold and evenings quite breezy, but when the sun was out, the views were glorious. From many sites in the campground you can see the Kluane Range of mountains, and sites 2-11 are on the lakefront, so you can see pieces of the lake from most of those sites.

We arrived at 2:00 p.m. on a Saturday in June and there were still many sites available. Our group parked in sites #2, 8, 10, and 14 (which is for handicapped access only). All were comfortable and pretty.

Site #10 was level gravel, and we pulled in head first to maximize our view of the water. Sites 2, 3, and 9 have great views of the water.

You choose your site (any site without a tag or vehicle in it) and then fill out the reservation card on the kiosk, inserting your $20 CAD into the envelope, and placing the tear-off portion of the card on your site post. We never saw a ranger or anyone checking the sites, but someone had come through and pulled off expired tags.

We would definitely stay here again when traveling the Alaska Highway. You have access to Kluane National Park and great views of Kluane Lake and the Kluane Range.
