Yukon and Alaska Bound, Part 26 - Takhini Wild Life Park


Back to Civilization and Takhini Wild Life Park


13th of July 2014.

We are on the road again heading towards Whitehorse, Yukon. We leave Five Mile Lake Campground and have a nice drive. Twenty kilometers before reaching Whitehorse we turn off the highway towards Takhini Hot springs.

The signage for the hot springs is really poor so you have to watch for it. We set up camp at the Campground. Only Electric hook up here, but they do have a dump station.



We found out that there are new owners for the campground and new owners to the hot spring, and also separate owners of the restaurant.



The hot springs are OK but not spectacular. We did have a quick dip.



The following day we decide we need to go to civilization and head in to Whitehorse.



We set up camp at Hi Country RV Park. This is a great park even though some of the sites are a bit tight.



Hi Country RV Park is just outside Whitehorse and is a very well run. They have a wash down station for your rig but there is a brand new car/trailer/truck/RV wash across the street. That one is great!



On the 15th of July we drive back out to Takhini to visit the Takhini Wild Life Park. This makes for a great 5 km walk around park. Allow several hours, so you can see and enjoy the animals.



Do bring some water. You can also take a tour if you so desire, but we decided to do the self guided walking tour.



If  you have children this will be pretty exciting for them.
