Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek is situated on the Traditional Territory of the White River First Nation. 

This small border town is the last Yukon community before the Alaskan border, and is the westernmost community in Canada.

Long before the Alaska Highway provided a continuous link from Alaska to British Columbia and beyond, the First Nations people of the area travelled, traded and lived for millennia. The White River First Nation continues to preserve a rich cultural heritage and ageless tradition of respecting the land.

In town, you’ll find a range of services and amenities, including hotels and RV parks, restaurants and a Visitor Information Centre.
