Something not right?

Description

Big deep puddle near the road. Too deep even for 4x4. There's a narrow gravel road heading south to sulphur creek. Leads to an open, flat area with a fire pit and the most amazing mountain views you can wish for. Plus a great wild life observation spot towards the creek. High chance of spotting moose or bears!
Better than places by Kluane Lake as this is hidden and further from the Alaska highway.

Uh. Just one word to describe this spot... "yes".

Agree with the name. This is a great area. we stayed at the first right turn on high elevation with a clearing to see critters (if around). Please help keep this spot epic and clean.

Fabulous site and impossible to beat view for dinner. Easy to recommend but no water access. I wouldn't take a sedan down the access road but SUV/truck ok.

Even after rains could do it in our awd no problem. Good spot and view no water access. 2 bar telus on the higher spot

Such a great spot, we came here twice! I haven't forgotten it since our trip to Alaska, and now that we're heading back down to the lower 48 (nearly 2 years later) we had to find it again.

Stunning views. And mosquitoes were minimal thanks to the wind

Report Check-In

great spot! two sites near the road (one on each side) and two more down by the cliff. the road down can be a little rough but the views are worth it. no spots to turn around so you'll have to commit.

As others have said, amazing views of the mountains and despite what some have said we parked two ex-military 6x6 trucks in here no problem.

Report Check-In

Wow, worth coming down for the view alone. Narrow road but made it down in our Class B+. Drive all the way to the bottom of the road and there are 2 great spots. Enjoy!

Possibly the best camp we had in the Yukon. Incredible views, fire rings. Space for 4 vehicles, even for one big rig. But not sure if they’d fit coming down the road

wanted to stop here but the dirt road looked really muddy and not passable in our 2wd minivan :(

Absolutely stunning
Everything is still as described.
No animals for us!

As other voyagers said, this place is really nice and the view is amazing! A bit of mosquitoes though but the fire kept them away ;) please let this place clean!!!

Report Check-In

All still the same. One of the most stunning views we've had from a wildcamp spot in a looong time! Highly recommended! No facilities. Free.

The description of this place is accurate. It is probably one of the most incredible views of any place we have camped in 3 years. Perfect for several days. We were able to get cell service but it was a little weak.

Report Check-In

Stayed one night alone with the mosquitoes. Thanks to the open space, there’s a light breeze that push them away sometimes.
No sights of furry friend.
The road is narrow (no truck camper or RV, I think) and watch for low clearance. We are low clearance (class b Roadtrek) and we were ok. There are two spots at the end, one or two on the way.
View is amazing. It would be nicer in the morning if no clouds.

Report Check-In

Great spot. About as narrow as a full size SUV, 500m off the highway. Keep it clean!

Report Check-In

Beautiful and very quiet. Narrow road but ok for small camper or vans

Report Check-In

Wonderful spot, not for RVs but great for a van! Good to have binoculars 😊

Report Check-In

Absolute fabulous views!! There's enough room for about three small campers and if it's full, there's another pull-out further up the gravel road for a 4th. So, much more space than we expected from the descriptions. No water source though.

Report Check-In

As described. Amazing views and super quiet. No bears for us though ;-)

Report Check-In

Breathtaking view over the mountains. Really quiet. We saw a bear at 20m in the morning so be clean and it will be alright!
One of the best spot we had for these past 3 months in Canada ;)

Report Check-In

Our rig was too big to fit down the road so we camped on the hill to the right just after turning in. Sweeping mountain views and a grizzly bear! highway noise was minimal.

Report Check-In

Beautiful spot. Enough space for two parties without being too close to each other.

Report Check-In

Perfect Place with Mountain view! There is a nice fireplace!
But not for big camper vans.
No facilities - but wonderful!

beautiful spot with great mountainview. not for big rigs.

I do agree, spectacular view and very quiet! Worths a stop even just for a picture!

Sadly this spot was taken when we came but there are plenty of pull outs on this road leading to it! Still nice :)

Report Check-In

Beautiful views, lots of bear activity. At least 3 sightings within 100 yards. They didnt seem to care much for us, lots of berry bearing shrubs nearby. We had a roof tent, not much space for rvs bigopger than a van, nor is it completely flat. Million dollar views of Kluane National Park.
