Spectacular Parks & Campgrounds


To truly experience the Northwest Territories, take your camping gear for a highway driving adventure! Long ribbons of road without traffic jams or urban clutter take you through vast landscapes with unrivaled vistas — scenic boreal forests, breathtaking waterfalls, mountains, plains and valleys.

Take your time, explore. Savour the wide-open spaces and quiet of the wilderness. surround yourself with wild beauty and the whispers of history. Immerse yourself in the ancient heritage of our aboriginal people. Discover the comfort and natural beauty of our well-maintained territorial parks. All along the highway, stopping places beckon: wayside picnic areas, campgrounds, parks, quaint churches, traditional villages, tumbling rapids or roaring waterfalls. You’ll find countless places to camp, fish, view wildlife, canoe, pick berries, take a photo or a hike.

Territorial parks are owned and operated by the Government of the Northwest Territories and are open from mid May to September 15th. Note some parks open later, such as those located on the Dempster Highway (June 1) and the Dehcho region (opening dates vary and will be posted on the park's website at the beginning of each year).   Most campgrounds are readily accessible from the highways. When you enjoy one of our pristine camping spots, please be sure to leave it that way for the next visitor. Welcome to the Northwest Territories! Have a spectacular visit!
