Juk Territorial Park is a campground park and recreation destination located 5 kilometres south of Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada on the Dempster Highway. The park entrance is located at the 731 kilometre (Mile 454) point on the Dempster Highway which is 266 kilometres after the Yukon/NWT Border crossing.

Juk means "berries" in the native language of the Gwichin' First Nation people. The park is surrounded by head-high berry bushes containing cranberries, cloudberries and blueberries. Berries attract wildlife, so always be aware of your surroundings.

The campground park is a mixture of powered and non powered campsites. The amenities in the park include picnic tables, a playground, some fire pits, firewood when available, fresh tap water, kitchen shelter, pit toilets and hot showers. And there is a small pebbled beach in the park.

Some of the activities enjoyed in the park during the summer months include hiking, birdwatching, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and picnicking.

Within the park is a 10 metre lookout tower. The tower is accessed from a spiral wooden staircase which leads up to a viewing platform where there are some interpretive signs. From the tower there are views of the Robinson Mountains and the Mackenzie Delta region.

In the Juk Territorial Park is the trailhead entrance to the Northern Forest Interpretive Trail. It is part of the TCT (Trans Canada Trail). The trail follows a dirt and boardwalk trail along the shores of the delta. There are viewing areas along the route ideal for birdwatching.

Some of the wildlife sightings in the area may include waterfowl like ducks and some predator birds like hawks, eagles and falcons.
