The campground is a pleasant 800m walk from the lake which has a large day shelter to relax in. The water is a very "refreshing" temperature for a very short swim (jump into deep water off the jetty) after the must-do walk up to Kings...More

This is a lovely National Parks Canada campground. The fee for camping is $15.70/night, plus $8 for unlimited firewood if want to have a fire. Unlike at other Ntl Parks, they do a terrible job of splitting the firewood. Bring a massive axe or log...More

I didn't go fishing when I was there but yes you need a special license to fish in Kluane National Park. Google National Parks and you should find out where to go to get the license. It's a beautiful spot.... enjoy!
