  • Have your credit card handy, as each online reservation must be paid in full at the time of booking.
  • If you are planning travel or events around your bookings, please remember that the check-out time is noon, while check-ins can begin at 2:00 pm.

NWT Parks generally open mid-May and close mid to end of September. This varies from park to park.  North Slave Parks will be the first to open this year as gates open on May 12th. Blackstone Territorial Park (in the Dehcho) will stay open the latest, with a planned closing date of September 26th.
