WELCOME TO 

Watson Lake

The Gateway to the Yukon! Watson Lake is known for its world famous Sign Post Forest. The tradition began in 1942, when a homesick U.S. Army G.I. was assigned to repair a damaged signpost that stated distances to various points along the highway. He added his own hometown, ‘Danville, Illinois, 2835 miles” to the post. Signs are added every year and today there are over 72,000 signs and counting!
