The population was 55 at the 2006 census. The population of Destruction Bay in 2011 has dropped to 35 people. Most recently, the population increased by 57% to 55 individuals at the 2016 census.
Populated mostly by non-aboriginal residents, community residents provide Yukon government services to residents in the area (school, highway maintenance), including nearby Burwash Landing and some tourism-related businesses along the Alaska Highway. The name is derived from the wind blowing down structures erected by the military during highway construction in 1942–43.
The community has a one-room school serving kindergarten through grade eight.
