Watson Lake

Signpost Forest
 

Sign Post Forest – In 1942, when the Alaska Highway was under construction, a worker posted a sign post for his hometown, thousands of miles away. Over the years, people from all over the world have posted signs from their hometowns, more than 65,000 signs. Kids will enjoy looking at all the different signs (and you can make a sign to bring with you to add to the forest).

 

Northern Lights Centre – Learn about the fascinating Aurora borealis, or northern lights, produced by particles colliding as they enter the earth's atmosphere, and resulting in dancing lights of red, yellow, blue, and green in the night sky. Watch a 1 hour panoramic movie of northern lights as they appear in the Yukon.

   

Lucky Lake – On warm summer days, go for a swim in the lake, which also has a 500 ft. water slide. Sandy beaches are perfect for toddlers, and there are plenty of picnic tables.

Liard River Hot Springs
 

Liard River Hot Springs (BC) – A few miles down the highway, just across the border in British Columbia, is a delightful hot springs. The lower pool is a great place for everyone in the family to relax. Also by the parking lot is a playground, and lots of picnic tables. The turnoff from the highway is a sign that says"Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park Campground."
