The notice to cancel the lease for Dawson City‘s downtown campground has been canceled, a report said.

The Dawson City council voted on Aug. 31 in camera to revoke the termination notice issued months ago.

The operators of Goldrush Campground, Pat Brooks and Dianne Brooks, let out a sigh.

They thanked guests and fellow tourists for their support of “in-town” accommodation in a statement posted on their website.

The council has been subject to intense lobbying by the tourism industry for continued use of the downtown site for RV visitors.

Brian Stethem (chair of Klondike Visitors Association), stated that Dawson “is threatening the stability of tourism industry in our community” in a statement released in June.

Dawson City is home to Yukon‘s fastest-growing rural community. It has both historical and seasonal interests in mining and tourism. This community has a severe housing shortage year-round.

Council was in a difficult spot. The move, which initially appeared like council foresight – the preparation and placement of a full block in the city as a potential location to replace their ill-fated and deteriorating recreation center – turned into a discussion to determine the best use of the downtown block.
