At the northern tip of Bennett Lake, on the old Klondike Gold Rush trail, and about 30 kilometres east of Carcross, lies the settlement of Tagish, which is farther downstream on the chain of lakes that feed into the Yukon River than Carcross.
Tagish, located off the main highways, is a mix of year-round residents and part-year cottage residents, whereas Carcross is the larger of the two communities. It lies 74 km south of Whitehorse on the Klondike Highway and about 110 km north of Skagway, Alaska. Tagish attracts tourists and cottage owners from Whitehorse. In addition, many people live in the community and commute into Carcross or Whitehorse for work.
