Spectacular Parks & Campgrounds

Spectacular Parks & Campgrounds


Take your camping gear for an ultimate Northwest Territories highway driving adventure! Long ribbons of traffic-free highways take you through vast landscapes with unrivaled vistas — scenic boreal forests, breathtaking waterfalls, mountains, plains and valleys.

Take your time, explore. Savour the wide-open spaces and quiet of the wilderness.  Surround yourself with wild beauty and the whispers of history. Immerse yourself in the ancient heritage of our aboriginal people. Discover the comfort and natural beauty of our well-maintained territorial parks.

Along your journey, stopping places beckon: wayside picnic areas, campgrounds, parks, quaint churches, traditional villages, tumbling rapids or thundering waterfalls. You’ll find countless places to camp, fish, view wildlife, canoe, pick berries, take a photo or a hike.

Territorial parks are owned and operated by the Government of the Northwest Territories and are open from mid-May to mid-September.  Some parks open later, such as those located on the Dempster Highway (June 1) and the Dehcho region (opening dates vary and will be posted on the park's website at the beginning of each year).   

Most campgrounds are readily accessible from the highways. Welcome to the Northwest Territories! Have a spectacular visit!
