NWT PARKS ALERTS
It is time to start thinking about camping! The 2016 camping season starts on May 15, 2016. All NWT Parks will be open, except for those located on the Dempster Highway. NWT Parks along the Dempster Highway will open on June 1, 2016.
Online reservation for campsites will begin on Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 10 a.m. for all territorial parks except Fred Henne Territorial Park. Fred Henne Territorial Park campsites can be reserved online starting Friday, April 8, 2016 at 10 a.m. Fred Henne Territorial Park is one of the largest and busiest parks. NWT Parks aims to improve the reservation system process for campers during peak demand times by spanning the opening dates of the online reservation system over two days. NWT Parks would be interested in receiving any feedback on this new process.
Extended stay campsites will be available at Prelude Lake and Reid Lake Territorial Parks in 2016. The draw for these campsites will occur on Sunday, April 3, 2016 at St. Patrick’s High School Gym in Yellowknife. Check back here in mid-March for more information about the Extended Stay Draw Registration process.
