Do we offer a recycling program in the park?

Yes. Recycling bins are located in each campground loop next to the comfort station. We recycle pop cans, steel food cans, paper, boxboard, cardboard, and plastics #1 and #2. In order to not attract wild animals, such as black bears, to our recycling bins, please ensure items are clean before depositing. Special attention should be given to cleaning food cans and cardboard. We are not able at this time to recycle glass or small gas cylinders.

Are pets allowed in the park?

Yes. Pets must be kept on a leash of less than three metres for their own protection and for the protection of others. There is no veterinary service for over 300 km, so please help to protect your pet from an avoidable encounter with wildlife. Pet owners are responsible for picking up excrement; if you require a bag, for this purpose, ask staff at the Kiosk.
