Adventures Beyond the Highway
Your tour of the Northwest Territories doesn't have to stop at the end of the highways. While you are here, take advantage of the opportunity to explore and experience areas not accessible by all-season roads. Nestled between the western shore of Great Bear Lake and the Mackenzie Mountains are the communities of Norman Wells, Tulita, Deline, Fort Good Hope and Colville Lake, which are only accessible by road in winter. Norman Wells, the regional centre, enjoys daily jet service from Yellowknife and points south, and offers connections to outlying settlements as well as hunting, fishing and naturalist lodges through-out the area.
McKinnon Territorial Park
McKinnon Territorial Park is the only territorial campground not accessible by road. Located in the community of Norman Wells, on the banks of the Mackenzie River, it offers eight nonpowered campsites.
