Great summer spots to hangout in Yellowknife NT
Yellowknife in the summer is unbeatable! Here are a few summer hangouts and things to do you maybe havent thought of:
Cameron River and Cameron River Crossing park:
Most Yellowknifers know about Cameron Falls, I could write a whole blog about that and the hike to it! What a spectacular family friendly place to go. But some residents dont know about the Cameron River Crossing Park and the nearby camping spots (that are free, but first come first serve). Many summer days in my youth were spent in this particular area of the Ingraham Trail as it is beautiful, quiet and for the most part well kept. Some unruly campers aside. This is the perfect area for a day trip, an overnight trip or even just a quick drive to dip your toes in the river.
For the more organized and willing to pay camper this camp site is perfect. The family friendly campsite features a boat launch and a nice beach, a park and a large area for kids to bike play and enjoy the summer while the adults have a pop and a hotdog. A great place to camp and enjoy the northern summers.
The Yellowknife Golf Club:
When I think of Yellowknife one of the first things to mind certianly isnt golf.. BUT! This quaint little golf club has much too offer. No not grass or at least much of it, this golf course does have a great driving range, a restaurant/bar and a lot of sand! The fairways at the Yellowknife Golf Clubs are sand, not your usual golf fairway I know, but still a great time. Walk to get some steps in during your round, or do as I do and grab a cart, stuff some pops in your bag and swing that stick!
Hope you are all enjoying this great weather we are having!
