New Campsites to Open May 15 at North Arm

Fifteen new campsites will welcome outdoor enthusiasts at the North Arm Territorial Park in Northwest Territories, expected to open on May 15.

According to NWT Parks’ website, the North Arm Territorial Park, near the day-use area, offers travelers a stop along Highway 3. This site, located on the shores of Great Slave Lake, transitions from the Mackenzie lowlands to the granite of the Canadian Shield. This area is noted for its wildlife, particularly as a nesting ground for waterfowl.

Kris Johnson, the North Slave regional superintendent for the NWT’s Department of Industry, Tourism, and Investment, in a Cabin Radio report highlighted the campground’s unique location.

We tried to actually locate the campground around where the sandier parts of the shore access would be,” she said.

The new campground will offer an accessible playground, a kitchen shelter with a fire pit and deck, and outhouses. 

Each campsite is equipped with power and can be reserved for a nightly rate of CA$33.33 through the NWT Parks website. Although the kitchen shelter—complete with a fire pit and deck for hosting events—is still under construction, it is scheduled for completion by summer.

For this camping season, NWT Parks has recently introduced a new online booking system for campsite reservations, offering campers improved and streamlined reservation experiences.

Parks in the Northwest Territories offer a plethora of routes and trails, each providing unique outdoor experiences for adventurers and nature enthusiasts. The Waterfalls Route, for example, invites explorers to traverse a landscape dotted with numerous waterfalls, rivers, and lakes, complemented by hiking trails and sandy beaches ideal for fishing. 

Additionally, the Heritage Route takes visitors through a terrain of forested hills, mountains, and clear lakes stretching from Fort Simpson to Wrigley.

Other pathways include the Great Slave Route, which connects the communities along the southern shores of Great Slave Lake and offers sightings of Hay River and Fort Resolution. 

As the opening of the new campsite approaches, nearby private campgrounds can also consider how their offerings compare, and make necessary adjustments or improvements. This could include updating reservation systems to streamline booking processes, enhancing site amenities, or even organizing special opening events to draw in crowds.
