Cassiar Highway Report

Looking to find out if anyone has been on the Cassiar Highway up in Northern BC/Yukon area recently (last two years). I have read much about this route which we would use going south on our return from Alaska this July. Any information will be appreciated.

We were on it in June and I had no issues. Our MH is 35 feet and towing our 2008 Jeep Wrangler. We also used it as our southern route. Enjoy your trip.

There are a couple of parks on the highway and one in Hyder, AK. We overnighted in the parking lot at Jade City.

Yep, be sure to fill up at Watson Lake, now that the town of Cassiar is gone, it is a long way till the next fuel. There were some fishing lodges and such that sold it the last time I went down (about 8 years ago). Jade City definitely worth the stop. Dease Lake is ok too.

We went in 04 and it was challenging to say the least. Also went in 09 and was much improved and had no trouble. Don't forget to stop in Stewart and Hyder after mid July to see the bears. One of the many highlights of the trip.
