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!

    Would it be possible to reserve a campsite for the July 1st long weekend?

    and the Alaska Highway at km 1278” was in fact superb.

    Hi folks, Coming up your way 19 Jul, 2014. Don’t know if you are accepting reservations but if you are sure would like one. Will be driving 38″ Class A, pulling a toad, headed for Carmacks and points north. Talked very briefly on the phone with a very nice lady and was told you can get the big guys down to the lake.

    Has the ice on the lake cleared enough to fish from shore? I’m trying to locate your campground on my 1:50,000 topo map; any shoreline, topographic, or other features that would help?

    Thank you,

    The lake ice has been gone for a few weeks now and we have been catching lake trout just off shore. I paddled my canoe out last evening and caught a nice pan sized trout just off the campground. We offer complimentary use of our canoes & kayaks to registered guests. Looking forward to seeing you.

    Thank you. Glad you liked the website. Hope to see you guys at the campground one day. The fishing has been great. I took my canoe out and caught a nice little lake trout just out from shore.

    Gorgeous campground. Perfect for a quiet night and alternative to the busier campground areas. I felt lucky to find it. Thanks for the hospitality.

    My husband and I were driving through the area and noticed an RV park for sale near the bridge. Is this the one?
