Tombstone Territorial Park
The enchanting Tombstone Territorial Park is 2,200 squared kilometers of pristine wilderness with picturesque rugged peaks, permafrost landforms, and a wide array of unique flora and fauna. The park is a legacy of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in land claim agreement and lies within their traditional territory. Come for a day hike or a multi-day backcountry adventure!
The friendly and knowledgeable staff at the Tombstone Interpretive Centre will provide you with everything you need from trail maps to camping permits. Drop in for a cup of ‘Mountain Wild’ tea by the fire, visit the library, take part in an interpretive program or special event and enjoy the informative displays.
From downtown Dawson, take the North Klondike Highway for approximately 40 minutes. Turn left onto the unpaved Dempster Highway and continue your drive for another hour, until you reach the Tombstone Interpretive Centre (located on the left).
