There are a couple of RV parks and campgrounds at Carmacks.
The Yukon village of Carmacks was named for one of the discoverers of Bonanza Creek, a name closely associated with the Klondike Gold Rush. Its advantageous location at the confluence of the Yukon and Nordenskiold Rivers has resulted in the slogan Hub of the Yukon. Travel to almost anywhere in the territory is easy from here.
Carmacks was originally a mining settlement and riverboat stop during the Gold Rush era. The modern village, although small, has a full set of services for the visitor, including car care, restaurants, grocery stores and a tourist centre.
