Gwich’in Territorial Campground

Enjoy the spectacular shoreline of Campbell Lake; try your luck fishing, hike in search of unique rocks and fossils, or hit the beach for a swim above the Arctic Circle. These are just a few of the options available at Gwich’in Territorial Campground.

This site, along with the nearby Vadzaih Van Tshik Campground, two day-use areas and the Tithegeh Chii Vitaii Lookout, comprise Gwich’in Territorial Park, home to limestone cliffs, stunning Arctic plants and beautiful scenery. 

During the long summer days, the campground is packed with canoes, fisherfolk, kayakers, birdwatchers and picnics. In winter, the frozen lake is a popular ice-fishing spot. 

The campground, which is only about 30 kilometres south of Inuvik on the Dempster Highway, includes 15 non-powered campsites and four tent sites, washrooms, drinking water, a kitchen shelter and a boat launch.
