When you’re driving on the Alaska Highway, you can’t help but see the Sign Post Forest. It’s worth a stop, for sure, even if it’s just to take a photograph. Sadly, we were passing through in late April, and with lots of snow on the...More

This place is really cool! Even though it was snow covered (we could only access a small part of it) there were hundreds of interesting signs to see. It must be so much fun to meander through the entire place!

If you are traveling the AlCan highway, plan time to stop at the Sign Post Forest in Watson Lake, Yukon. People have brought road signs from all points on the globe and left them here.

This place is truly amazing. It may seem stupid to have a whole area dedicated to signs but trust me, when you're there you'll realize its beauty. If you just take a moment and actually walk around, you'll start to see signs from all around...More

This site is an attraction unique to the Canada/ Alaska experience. Wander through and get a sense of the wide range of places in the world from which the visitors hailed. We of course nailed our Alabama license plate there.

Take a break on the Alcan Highway and check out the signs. Perhaps that says other than awesome scenery there is very little to do on the highway. Still, if you are driving through Watson Lake check out the sign post forest.

Was there last a decade ago and has it ever grown. Overwhelming as there are so many signs but simply one of those places one has to visit on the way up North :) Bernd and Bettina Williams Lake, BC

Mainly screws and nails. People at the info centre are most helpful in assisting people include their sign.

as others have stated there is no permit required but it is difficult to find a space . After you hang the sign take a picture and make a note as to where you put it in case you ever want to go back one day and see it again... More
