The site of Black City lies in the north end of the Tombstone Territorial Park on the banks of the Blackstone River. Legally, it is part of Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Settlement Land parcel S-145B. There are no physical remains of the former camp. We ask that you treat this area as private property and refrain from visiting the site but we do welcome you to enjoy the natural heritage of the Blackstone Uplands.
