This beach is clean and well kept. A nice place to picnic and less then an hour from Whitehorse. It is on the way to Carcross trading post and a great stop of a quick picnic or a day spend. There is a a toilet and a few picnic benches.

Fun spot for pallet fires! Dogs like this place too. Carcross is the next Brooklyn, if Brooklyn had big lakes and mountains and mountain bike trails

this beach is great this time of year, the snow has not yet melted in the mountains and the water is low so you have miles of beach ---- too bad it is not +30 and no bar near by as this beach would be able to compete with any beach in mexico

Honestly, I live in Whitehorse and had no idea that we had such a wonderful beach so close to home. We went on a spectacular day and the water was even warm enough to dip in. The sand is nice and there is ice cream near by. Parking is very close. A great place to bring family and friends.

What an interesting place. The sandy beach and the surrounding area is worth the stop. We enjoyed our stroll through the Carcross desert. Not much for groceries, so bring your own and nothing opens early.

Stand on the beach and imagine thousands of Stampeders in their homemade boats heading off to the Gold fields in the Klondike. bring a scarf as it is almost always windy then wander through Carcross...good way to spend a day...everything is free except the ice cream from the General store
