Timberpoint is a wilderness oasis, nestled between Teslin Lake and the Alaska Highway right at the kilometer post ~ Km 1278. This campground lies directly on the lakeshore of one of Yukon’s largest, and most beautiful fresh-water lakes. This makes our campground popular with all types of visitors – from the RV traveler, to the tenter, or the cyclist.
The campground is very quiet and offers excellent views with a number of unserviced lake-side RV and tenting sites. Facilities are limited with outdoor privies, garbage containers, fire pits and picnic tables throughout. A covered rain shelter with a wood stove is offered for evening visits. Water and firewood are available free of charge, so you may relax and enjoy the views beside a crackling fire, amidst Yukon’s breathtaking wilderness.
The hillside nearby is home to a small band of stone sheep which can be seen browsing early morning, or catching the last of the evening sunshine. The sunsets are spectacular at this location on Teslin Lake!
If you like to bird watch, then you’ll be happy to know that the southern lakes region of Yukon is the summer home to many different species of songbirds. Timberpoint is also located on the annual migration route of the sandhill crane, swans and geese – truly a nature lover’s paradise!
There is access to the lake where you can stroll the sandy shoreline, or set yourself down and relax on one of our new benches and take in a fabulous evening sunset, or listen to the pair of resident loons calling. We offer the use of our canoes and kayaks to registered guests to paddle the shoreline, or for the more adventurous, launch your motor boat at our gravel boat launch, and troll out to catch a nice fresh lake trout for dinner.
Teslin lake is well known for it’s fishing and has a variety of species, including arctic grayling, inconnu, lake trout, white fish, northern pike and salmon in the fall.
Timberpoint is family owned and operated. Our campground is clean, quiet and very well kept. We are pet friendly and look forward to meeting you!
