Overview
More
Facilities: This park has 20 powered sites, and 12 non-powered sites. Located near the entrance to Fort Simpson, and at the confluence of the Mackenzie and Liard rivers, groceries, restaurants and information centres are within walking distance. The Papal Site nearby commemorates the 1987 visit of Pope John Paul ll. Park Highlights: This is a great location for bird-watching and listening to the chorus of northern frogs! Many different species of birds have been documented here. The Snye is a shallow wetland ecosystem located between the main portion of the community and the southern shoreline of the river. Migratory waterfowl may be seen in season, including tundra swans and snow geese. A community trail around the perimeter of the community of Fort Simpson links several historic sites, and is readily accessible from the campsite. The trail winds its way around the golf course and allows for excellent opportunities for observing nature, including a variety of birds, reptiles and plants.

This little gem of a camping park is awesome. You feel like you are in the middle of the woods but you are on the edge of town. Check out the amazing fire circle ring where stories and legends are told.

We did not have enough gas on hand to make our destination which was Fort Liard so we re-routed into Fort Simpson for gas and spent a night at the beautiful Fort Simpson Territorial Park. The camp sites were nice and it was not real...More

We were greeted by camp operator when we arrived. The bathrooms were warm and clean, which is something you are looking for when not camping in an RV. Warm was important as we were there at the end of the season when temperatures were cooler.
