The Canyon City campground provides a nice place to take a break from hiking, with several tables and two warming shelters. This backcountry campground is at mi 7.7 (km 12.5). The campground is located just half a mile from the historic Canyon City townsite where hikers can see artifacts leftover from the gold rush days including the large metal tram boiler. In order to camp overnight along the Chilkoot Trail on the U.S. side you must purchase a backcountry permit from the Chilkoot Trail Center in Skagway.
