Local Activities

Rock Hounding

The turbulent spring water washes a fresh array of rocks and fossils down the river bed from the active glacier at the head of the White River and deposits them on the river banks. This means we have renewed rich pickings once the spring melt water subsides. Call into the office to see our ‘floating rocks’ and then head off to the river to find your own!

There are some short trails to try within the property, as well as some longer trails nearby enjoyment.  If you prefer to find your own trails, this is the place for you. Fishing is a favourite pastime within the local community and for travelers. Come and talk to us, as we can suggest some lakes and areas that are picture perfect for fishing.

Food To Table Garden

On arriving at DYL, you will quickly realise that we are a long way from anywhere! We only have a food delivery once a month, which isn’t enough to keep us in fresh vegetables when we are cooking for our guests. Thankfully our thriving garden is full of vegetables which allow us to cook you a healthy and delicious meal.

Wildlife Spotting

In the Yukon, observing the incredibly varied wildlife that makes this land their home is just as available to those camping and traveling in RVs as it is to those who venture into the wilderness on foot. Even from the road, you can spot bears,  moose, lynx, wolves, & coyotes are some of the other animals you see, as well as the swans and eagles.
