Fred Henne Territorial Park in Summer


Visit for the latest COVID-19 updates for NWT Parks.

The Northwest Territories' parks are integral to our budding tourism industry and are thus important to the Department’s mandate for supporting tourism and adventure opportunities in the NWT. ITI delivers support for parks within the NWT in partnership with NWT Parks and Parks Canada.

Territorial parks are owned and operated by the Government of the Northwest Territories and most are readily accessible from the highways.

NWT campgrounds generally open mid-May and close mid to end of September, but this varies from park to park.  Click here for the listing of all campground opening and closing dates.  

Our parks programs are administered from our five regional offices. They will be your first point of contact for any questions regarding parks in the NWT.
