Overview

Facilities: This park right on the edge of the city has something for everyone: choose from 62 powered sites, 39 non-powered sites and 12 tent pads. Swim at Long Lake’s sandy beach. Camp, picnic, canoe or enjoy the amenities and attractions of Yellowknife, located just 3 km/1.8 miles away. Hike the 4 km/2.5 mile Prospector’s Trail, highlighting the gold bearing geology of the area. The 4 km/2.5 mile Prospector’s Trail starts just to the left of the shower building. Self-guided booklets are available at the gatehouse or at the Northern Frontier Visitors Centre in downtown Yellowknife. Yellowknife is only a short drive down Highway 3, with shopping , restaurants, several hotels and all modern amenities. Park Highlights: Across the highway from the park, a hiking trail leads through a wilderness area to connect to a trail system winding around Yellowknife lakes and linking different parts of the city. Check at the gatehouse before you start out for recent wildlife sightings, and inquire about guided tours.

We found this park had one of the nicest beaches around. You can walk to the beach from within the campground but you also have Day use acccess.

Just don't. Two out of three times that I have tented here, I have been kept awake in wee hours by drunks. There is no security after 2am. It's a haven for underage drinking parties. Not a safe or happy place for families.More

Very well maintained. Campground has several washroom/shower houses through out. Large lots most with electricity. Sandy beach , and the coolest thing is you are 5 minutes from shopping although you feel like you are way out in the woods!!!

Staff was awesome, many sites were gorgeous. Noisy from the nearby highway, and adjacent airport, as well as from the speed boats on the lake! But we still loved it.
