Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by
licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields. For more information, call 867-993-7200, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/klondike. Bonjour!

S.S. Klondike National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The British Yukon Navigation (BYN) Company sternwheeler fleet plied the upper Yukon River between Whitehorse and Dawson City in the early twentieth century. The S.S. Klondike was the largest sternwheeler in the fleet. Built in 1929, the ship sank in 1936, was rebuilt and launched as the S.S. Klondike II in spring 1937.

Located on the banks of the Yukon River in Whitehorse, Yukon, and restored to its original 1937-40 appearance, the S.S. Klondike pays tribute to an era of riverboat transportation and the inland water transportation system that linked the Yukon to the outside world before the advent of roads. Explore the boat using the self-guided tour brochure, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the Geocache. Open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend. Bonjour! For more information, call 867-667-3910 / 1-800-661-0486, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/ssklondike.

S.S. Keno National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

The S.S. Keno was built in 1922 and has a shallow two-foot draft and a narrow beam. These features allowed the ship to navigate through shallow water and sections with ever-changing sandbars and gave it the ability to make turns around tight, narrow curves. The stern-mounted paddlewheel permitted the sternwheeler to land anywhere along riverbanks and it assisted in getting off sandbars. The paddle wheel was protected from snags and sweepers by the hull. The S.S. Keno worked mainly on the Stewart River hauling silver-lead concentrate from Mayo to Stewart City. It was also used for the early and late season trips to Dawson City. The S.S. Keno National Historic Site is open from the May long weekend till the September long weekend.

Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site

Banner Photos: 

Not long after gold was discovered in large quantities in the Klondike, dredges were brought into the Yukon—the first dredge was built in the fall of 1899. One of the two dozen dredges that worked this area, Dredge No. 4 was designed by the Marion Steam Shovel Company. The dredge rests on Claim No. 17 below Discovery on Bonanza Creek, near the spot where it ceased operations in 1960. Dredge No. 4 is the largest wooden hull, bucket-line dredge in North America and is a significant example of corporate
industrial mining in Canada.

Guided tours of Dredge No. 4 National Historic Site are provided by
licensed private operators. You can also learn about the dredge using the site guide, the Explora app, or the Xplorer kid's booklet. See if you can find the three Geocaches in the Klondike Goldfields. For more information, call 867-993-7200, www.parkscanada.gc.ca/klondike. Bonjour!
