Yellowknife — June 9, 2020

The Department of Industry, Tourism, and Investment will be opening its Northwest Territories (NWT) Parks Reservation system on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 for campsite bookings beginning Friday (June 12, 2020) at 5pm.

This decision is being made in anticipation of a move to Phase II of the Emerging Wisely Plan, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) path forward to emerging safely and wisely from the current COVID-19 public health restrictions.

Reservations for all NWT campsites except for Yellowknife’s Fred Henne Park will open at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday June 10, 2020. Reservations for the Fred Henne campground will open at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday June 11, 2020.

In the event that the anticipated move to Phase II is delayed or cancelled, all bookings that cannot be fulfilled will be refunded.


“Like many NWT residents, I am happy to see our territory reach a place where it is now safe for us to open NWT Parks for overnight stays. Our priority remains ensuring we maintain as safe an environment as possible for our staff, contractors and the public who will be sharing these spaces during our 2020 season, and protocols will be implemented to meet these needs.”
