NWT residents

Territorial park campgrounds are open for the 2021 season. NWT residents are encouraged to get outside, visit our campgrounds and take advantage of all they have to offer. 

  • You cannot isolate or self-isolate in a territorial campground.
  • Stay home if you are sick or if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • Wash your hands frequently, cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow or a tissue and stay two metres or six feet apart from others.
  • If it’s hard to keep two metres or six feet apart from others, please wear a mask and make sure to wash and change your mask often.
  • Book your campsites online if you can. If you must book in person, please be advised gatehouse operators may limit or restrict visitor access into the building. All visitors should stand back at least two metres (six feet) from the gatehouse doorway and wait for the operator to assist them.
  • Visitors are asked to clean park surfaces (picnic tables, etc.) before and after use. Campground contractors will be performing regular cleanings of campsites between visitors.
  • All visitors should bring a personal cleaning kit to enhance their individual health and safety while in our territorial parks and campgrounds. Bringing hand sanitizer and a wash basin for frequent hand washing; disinfectant cleaner for sanitizing shared surfaces (picnic tables); and a tablecloth are good ideas.
