In 1998 the international significance of the Klondike Gold Rush was officially recognized by Canada and the United States with the creation of the Klondike Gold Rush International Historical Park. The site in Skagway, Alaska, represents the "Gateway to the Klondike" and preserves the setting of two Klondike Gold Rush boom towns and trails to the Yukon gold.

The Chilkoot Trail National Historic Site and Dawson Historical Complex National Historic Site make up two units in Canada.
