Backcountry Camping Guidelines
  • Absolutely no cans and bottles are permitted for all interior adventurers, including day users.
  • Pets must be kept on a leash at all times
  • Be bear wise and hang all food, garbage and other scented items (i.e. toothpaste) from a tree, or a rope between two trees, at least 13 feet off the ground and 4 feet from the nearest tree trunk. This will help to minimize surprise visitors!
  • All drinking water must be purified via a rolling boil, purifying crystals, or a water filter.
  • Use only designated washroom sites, if you are caught with your pants down and no privy, move 60 meters from shore, dig a 6” hole and use as little toilet paper as possible  
  • Do not dump garbage, sanitary products or food scraps into privies
  • Interior camping is only permitted on designated sites, day paddlers and day hikers may not use interior sites for rest/lunch stops
  • Please keep all sites clean and litter free, even if it’s not your garbage; pack it out! Try to pack out more than you pack in.
  • Please use stoves for cooking as much as possible, if you must build a fire, use a designated fire pit and collect wood along your paddling route or well away from the campsite to avoid depletion. Ensure that fire is out before moving on.
  • Go jump in the lake…but not with your soap!  If you need to wash; lather up with a biodegradable soap at least 60 meters from the water and use a pot to rinse off.
  • Excessive noise is not allowed at any time!
  • Avoid damaging vegetation by staying on the trails. Please do not disturb or harass wildlife.
