The roadside fuel stop, gift shop, restaurant, and campground at Nugget City was all created by Don and Gwen Lee and their family. Don and Gwen now live in British Columbia but his daughter, who operates the gift shop, told us he built the campground at the age of 91. Don and Gwen married in 1948 and have done everything together since, including prospecting for gold and jade. Gwen wrote a book about their Yukon experience and we purchased a copy.
A section of a tree that had the largest knot we have every seen was located outside of the gift shop.
We just had to eat at the "Wolf It Down" restaurant and were not disappointed.

Click on the photo and notice the sign at the left of the door. We have discovered that up here they do not have bathrooms. Instead they are called washrooms. Even in the Walmart the sign reads "Washrooms".

We are now in Whitehorse, the capital of the Yukon, and the only city in the Yukon. At the last census the population was less than 28,000.
