Watson Lake
A true Yukon icon, the Watson Lake Sign Post Forest welcomes you to our corner of
the world. Watson Lake became known as Yukon’s gateway during construction of the
Alaska Highway in 1942, when a soldier posted the first sign of what would eventually
become thousands. Today, Watson Lake displays the most recognized collection of
signposts in the world. Whimsical man-made forests aside, this unique region is your
introduction to the sprawling boreal forests, mountains and plateaus of Liard River
country—traditional territory of the Kaska Dena of the Liard First Nation.
