Welcome to Watson Lake!

Situated in the rolling hills of southeast Yukon, Watson Lake offers many ways to enjoy the outdoors. Best of all, the spectacular Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) illuminate the night sky with dancing displays of colour.

Watson Lake is home to the famous Sign Post Forest, the incredible Northern Lights Space and Science Centre and the gateway to the exciting history and breathtaking scenery of Yukon.

Learn more about Watson Lake by visiting the Watson Lake Community Library or stop by the Visitor Information Centre (beside the Sign Post Forest). The friendly staff can help you plan your stay!
