One of the vessels in display in the Yukon. Collect them all!
Sep 2021 • Family
The vessel is now resting on the banks of the Yukon River. There is an admission fee to get inside. But even outside, you can definitely smell the ship. There is a visitor centre as well with a very small gift shop that sells Parks Canada swag.

There is ample parking for cars, RVs and buses.

Didn't knew that it is closed for renovations and tourists are not allowed to go inside. Would be good if atleast any one section remained open.

A great bit of history
Aug 2020
We took the guided tour and it was well worth it. The perspective on the history of the place and the gold rush was fantastic.

Great Experience!

Our family loved this super interesting tour! Greg was a really fantastic guide & you could tell how much he loved his job! Learned a lot about the boat’s history! They are still restoring upstairs but we still saw a lot. They were very good at social distancing and ensuring everyone’s safety!

Cool but Closed :(
Mar 2020
We stopped by to take some pictures and read about the SS Klondike but it's not open to visitors in the winter unfortunately. Park staff do keep the trails around it and along the river nicely maintained so we could walk around and see it/the beautiful scenery but disappointing we couldn't go on the ship itself. Next time!

travel on the Yukon River on a sternwheeler
Aug 2019
This refurbished sternwheeler is the second of the two S S Klondikes that plied the Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City for about 30 years. From the late 20's through the early 50's travel by river was the only way to travel between the two cities. So this ship carried passengers, miners, ore, and supplies including food. When the road was built, the age of the sternwheeler died. Touring the boat was a great experience--walking through history. On a self guided tour you could see the kitchen, engine room, bunks and the sternwheel up close. Don't make the mistake I made. There is a video so watch it--wish I had. Next time I will.

How did they travel in the Yukon 100 years ago?
Jul 2019
This historic old Sternwheeler shows you what it must have been like to travel in the days of the Klondike and Alaska Gold Rush.
They have guided and self guided ours and both are great.
The days of the gold rush must have been amazing and our ancestors that led the way must have been amazing and courageous individuals..
Be sure to watch the video for a good overview of what it was like.

Knowing about the area

This paddle wheel is a throw back to the early days. Very informative and the staff had lots of knowledge. Walking on a living piece of history is wonderful.
