Leave No Trace / Camping Etiquette

Leave No Trace Campground Etiquette

Whether you are new to camping or an experienced backcountry explorer there are 7 guiding principles of Leave No Trace Camping. Many of our policies adhere to these general principles.

  1. Plan Ahead and Prepare – Bring what you need for forecasted weather.
  2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces – Stay on designated trails and set up camp within pre-existing sites.
  3. Pack out what you Bring – Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
  4. Leave What You Find – Preserve the past: Leave plants and other natural objects as you find them. Do not pick wood from the forest. Do not dig or allow pets to dig trenches etc.
  5. Minimize Campfire Impacts – Use established rings, never leave fire unattended and ensure its out before departing. Don’t bring wood. You may bring insects that harm our natural rainforest. Visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for more information.
  6. Respect Wildlife – Observe from distance, never feed. Put away food attractants.
  7. Consider Others – Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience. Please remember we don’t allow amplified music.
