Whitehorse-Dawson City-Tuktoyaktuk

Started the trip on HWY-37 end of May-June and beginning of July 2019. We beat the crowd and bugs. Our objective was Dawson City and the Dempster hwy so pushed through to Dawson then take our time returning south. Overnited at Waters Edge Campground just north of Dease Lake. No hookups or shower but clean sites and on the lake. Next was Maziadin Lake Provincial campground. Great campground very well taken care of. Did a day trip down to Stewart-Hyder from there. Next stop was Boya Lake Provincial campground which is a great stop but was busy when we were there and could not get a spot on the lake as usual. We then pushed through to Whitehorse and stayed at Pioneer RV park full facilities and clean. There is parking close to the hwy which is noisy but there are sites farther back in the trees but not suitable for big rigs in the trees. Only had a two night stay in Whitehorse then headed for Dawson City. On the way overnighted at Moose Creek government campground. No hookups and room for big rigs but may have to back in as only a few pull-throughs. Dawson City, stayed at Bonanza Gold RV park, full facilities, clean. It is outside of the downtown core so will have to drive into town and is noisy being close to the hwy. Try for a spot farther back from the road. We left our trailer there in a non-hookup site when we travelled up the Dempster. There is an RV site right in town from which one could walk to facilities and there would be no noise there. Lots to see and do. Diamond tooth Gerties for the show and if sitting near the front may get dragged onto the stage. Hit the bakery in the morning before all the good stuff is gone. Across the street from the main tourist centre is the North West Territories tourist centre which is a must-do for Dempster information, conditions, ferries. The Dempster was mostly in very good condition and I had no tire issues. My truck had near new Michelin LT tires but I had two spares just in case, never used. The scenery on that road is just awesome. I would not recommend pulling a travel trailer mainly because the road is gravel and can be very very dusty. But if prepared for that, go for it. We stayed at Eagle Plains motel going up and back and a hotel in Inuvik, the Nova. If one is pulling a trailer and change your mind about taking it all the way to Inuvik it can be left at Eagle Plains. Eagle plains also has an RV park. While in Inuvik go to the tourist centre, lots of information and displays. Hit Alestines restaurant, great food and very friendly. It's unique, the kitchen is in a bus but there is a building to eat inside or out on the deck. We did a day trip to Tuk as its only 150 K away. They do have a small rv park. Went to Gramas for food and tried Muktuk, Beluga whale, an acquired taste for sure. Used french fries as a chaser. The scenery on the Dempster is just awesome and standing in the very very cold arctic ocean is an experience especially as there was still ice when we were there. There are a couple of government campgrounds along the Dempster and lots of pullouts some with awesome scenery to overnight. This is my short overview, and it was one great experience, go for it, spend the kid's inheritance.
