We took an RV trailer there for 3 days. Incredible scenery. We arrived around 4 pm on a Friday and got the last available site. There is an overflow area where you can spend one night (no fire) before getting a site the next day....More

Pictures cannot do this place justice, nor can words, really. Stunning views, winding gravel highways, and nothing but the sound of the wind whistling through the spruce. Winter views are spectacular.

Tombstone is 50 km up the Denoster highway towards Inuvik and another 40 east from Dawson city. It takes roughly an hour and a half to get there. I would recommend getting gas before heading up and making sure you drive accordingly to roads conditions....More

Most car rental places up there make you sign an agreement that you won't take the rental onto the Dempster highway because it's so hard on vehicles. If you're going to risk it, be sure you have a spare tire with you and... More
We are renting an RV in Whitehorse on Aug 31/15 for 2 weeks. Would you recommend Tombstone in the 1st week of Sept, or the 2nd?. our current road trip plans have us ending with the Dempster highway, but we can reverse them. Thank you, Dave
