Kluane National Park & Reserve, Yukon Territory, Canada
Pine Lake

Pine Lake photo galleryPine Lake is located on the Alaska Highway near the community of Haines Junction, Yukon Territories, Canada. The small lake is best known as a campground destination and as a day use recreation park for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, picnicking and swimming.

From the shores of the lake, looking north, one can see Paint`s Mountain looming over the lake. Pine Lake and the surroounding mountains were once a site used by the First Nation people for collecting red ochre. Red ochre was a special dye collected from the nearby Pine Lake mountains used for painting.

In the park is a small day use area located near the boat launch where the main beach is located. The beach is a mix of sand and pebbled rock. It is a good size beach with good views of the lake and nearby mountains. At the end of the beach is a short hiking trail which further explores the shoreline of Pine Lake.

There is a long wooden pier (next to the boat launch) extending out onto Pine Lake.The pier is ideal for swimming and for securing a canoe. Further up the shoreline of the lake, set back in the trees, is a large group BBQ pit area with bench seating, picnic tables and a big fire pit. Not far away is a picnic shelter and a children's playground.

The campground on Pine Lake includes campsites suitable for RVs, campers and tenters. However the campground is only open during the summer months between May and September. There is a camping fee for overnight visitors.
