Tips for your outdoor adventure:

Obtain information about the area and use restrictions.

In high-use areas, choose existing campsites.

In remote areas, chose campsites that cannot be damaged by your stay.

All campsites should be at least 200 feet from water or trails.

For cooking, use a lightweight gas stove rather than a fire.

In areas where fires are permitted, use existing fire rings or a fire pan.

Put fire completely out before leaving.

Deposit human waste in holes 6 to 8 inches deep. Replace dirt when finished. Locate at least 200 feet from water or camp. Carry out all toilet paper.

Pick up all trash and pack it out.

Leave flowers, artifacts and picturesque rocks and snags for others to enjoy.

Before you leave, take one last look at where you have been and do your best to leave no trace.
