There are no facilities or services of any kind in the park. Old Crow is the closest community and the primary staging area for trips into the park. With a population of 300 and no road access it is both the most northerly and the most isolated community in the Yukon. People normally fly to Old Crow from Whitehorse, Dawson City or Inuvik.
