“Yellowknife River Territorial Park”
About
Located on the Yellowknife River, the park is a perfect place to enjoy a picnic or fishing. For the more adventurous, boat up the river and into the string of lakes it connects to; or downstream into Back Bay and Yellowknife Bay on Great Slave Lake.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

Yellowknife River Territorial Park is a day use park with a boat launch. Not sure if it closes near the summer solstice as it's bright most of the "night". A crew of locals drinking heavily around a campfire who we avoided.

Launched our boat here on a weeknight in July and it was crazy busy. Short drive from the city so access is easy and the picnic tables were all full. The boat launch was in good shape and the dock was too.
