Ross River, Yukon

There is a Yukon Territorial Campground near Ross River.

The town of Ross River is located at the confluence of the Ross and Pelly Rivers, and began life as a trading post established in 1903, populated largely by First Nation people. By 1914 the population had swelled to 1,000 people but this figure dropped dramatically during the influenza outbreak in 1916. The current population is around 350. The region is well-known for the wealth of its wildlife, minerals and fish, which account for the continued presence of the Dena who still have a council office there.

Between 1942 and 1944, members of the American military built the Canol Pipeline which extended from Norman Wells to Whitehorse. The associated road opened up the area to traffic. The word canol is a contraction of Canadian Oil. This project was one of the most expensive undertaken during World War II, but was deemed necessary to provide oil for the building of the Alaska Highway which was a security measure against invasion by Japan.
