Overnight camping is allowed without a permit from November 16 to March 31 outside the Kluane Icefields area and the Kathleen Lake Day Use Parking Lot.

During the time periods that backcountry permits are not required, you are responsible for your own safety. You should file a travel plan with a friend or family member whether you are heading out for the day or on a multi-day trip. Visitors are also encouraged to carry satellite phones or personal locater beacons as cell phones are out of range in most areas of the park.
