The lake is pretty shallow especially near the boat launch. Boaters need to continually monitor their depth when fishing Snag Lake. Smaller shallow draft boats work best and will get you into some very good pike and grayling fishing along the far shorelines of the lake.


If you prefer to stop where you have Full Services and ultra clean facilities we suggest looking at Discovery Yukon RV Park near Snag Junction Campground. Discovery Yukon also has a free walking museum of artifacts dating to the construction of the Alaska Highway. Definitely one of our favorite camping stops along the Alaska Highway.
