Planned Yukon Campground Approved
The Yukon Government has given final approval for a new campground on Atlin Lake, CBC News reported.
The new Atlin Lake campground will include about 55 camping sites, with construction beginning this summer.
Currie Dixon, Yukon environment minister, said it will meet strong demand for campsites along the Atlin Road.
“Our campgrounds in that area tend to be very well used and this particular site is absolutely gorgeous and it will make an absolutely wonderful campground,” Dixon said.
Eric Schroff, the director of Yukon Parks, said this will be the first new campground since one was built outside Faro almost 30 years ago.
“All of the facilities, the picnic tables, the cooking shelters, those sorts of things will all be brand new, but it will follow the same basic design, with sites available for RVs, for people with tents, and it will be very family oriented as well.”
