OPEN CAMPFIRES PROHIBITED

Any use longer than 15 days requires that you obtain a right of entry permit.  Protect your privilege to camp on trust lands by observing the following:

  • Limit camping to existing campsites.
  • Campsites and personal items may not be left unattended for more than 72 hours.
  • No obstruction or prevention of access for other users is allowed.
  • Select a campsite on a durable surface or non-vegetated area at least 100 feet from water sources.
  • Do not camp in wet areas or fragile meadows.
  • Observe all fire restrictions and regulations.  If you must build a fire, use an existing fire ring, have a means to extinguish the fire nearby, and use only clean cord-type firewood or charcoal.  No burning of pallets or construction debris is allowed.  LEAVE CAMPFIRES DEAD OUT.
  • Firewood may be removed from trust lands through permit only.  Campfire wood collection of dead and down wood is allowed.
  • Fireworks are not allowed on any trust lands.
  • No garbage collection is provided:  PACK-IT-IN, PACK-IT-OUT.
  • Use stationary toilet facilities where available or your own portable toilet whenever possible. When a toilet is not available, bury solid human waste at least 8 inches deep and at least 200 feet from a campsite or water source.
  • DO YOUR PART by modeling appropriate behavior and leaving the area better than you found it.
