Camping in the Northwest Territories is truly a magical adventure. Experience the magic of the Aurora Borealis, probably nature’s greatest light show. For real magic, take a dogsled adventure under the northern lights. Or, if you prefer something a little warmer, find an outdoor hot tub in one of the campgrounds in the Northwest Territories and relax under the show. RV parks in the Northwest Territories will get you within sight of all those colors.

You may want to plan your camping in the Northwest Territories trip during one of the many festivals throughout the region. Campgrounds in the Northwest Territories will be near one of these. Combine a snow sculpture contest and Easter egg hunt in the same weekend at Fort Resolution in April. In May, catch the White Fox Jamboree in Sachs Harbour. Travel to RV parks in the Northwest Territories to hear Music in the Park in Yellowknife in June. In August, take a river trip during the PaddleFest in Fort Smith.

In January, travel to Inuvik for the Sunrise Festival.
One thing you shouldn’t miss while visiting the region is a chance to fish for record breaking fish. Imagine catching a giant lake trout, char, Northern pike, and Arctic grayling. Work a roaring mountain stream or troll a deep lake like Great Bear or Great Slave. In spring, ice fishing is popular where you can jig for tour on a northern lake, or try for Arctic cod on the sea ice.
Most people go camping in the Northwest Territories because they love having opportunities to view wildlife. While there, you may have the opportunity to see from the highway wood bison, moose, foxes, black bear, beaver, and muskrat. Or while in an aircraft or boat, you can view caribou, grizzly, muskoxen, and whales. Wander on your own or take an organized tour with an outfitter.
From mild to wild, paddlers can find something for every taste or skill level while exploring celebrated rivers and unspoiled wilderness lakes. And if you like whitewater, find one of the campgrounds in the Northwest Territories near the South Nahanni or the Natla-Keele. Kayak the rapids on the Slave River.
Make sure to bring along your binoculars when visiting RV parks in the Northwest Territories. With four North American flyways and several bird sanctuaries, you’ll be sure to add to your life list. One fifth of the North American continental population of ducks, geese and swans nest here. Year-round, chickadees, jays, ravens, and snowy owls live there.
