RE: Winter RV'ing in Northern NWT/Yukon

MDKMDK - Thank you for this suggestion. So far, I've looked at the tourism sites for both provinces to see if any of the parks/RV sites are open during the winter and provide hookups. Unfortunately, the information on the sites indicates all parks are closed during this period. But, I'll take your suggestion and contact the tourism offices for both provinces to get information, such as feasibility, from them directly. Yukon is not a province - officially it is a territory. And NWT is Northwest Territories - also not a province.

RE: Winter RV'ing in Northern NWT/Yukon

While living on Vancouver Island, we made two December trips into Yukon to visit my Dad for Christmas. December 1998 December 2001 In 2001 we experienced -40 temperature. Now we live in Yukon so am very familiar with winter conditions, no where near as cold as when I grew up here though. When I was a kid I remember -65F Don't expect any campgrounds to be open, but some businesses might let you plug in because vehicles overnighting in very cold weather need to plug in their block heaters. We usually used the opportunity to plug in the RV's engine block heater so it would be able to start in the morning. It is useful to have a generator if needed. Filling with propane can be an problem when it is very cold and propane may liquefy if it is very cold. Read the solution in my December 1998 story. If you're going north of the Arctic Circle, there is no sunrise on the shortest day of the year. Also be prepared for blizzards, it is common for the Dempster Highway to close in the winter due to wind and snow. You might also see Northern Lights width=700
