Things to keep in mind


  • Store all food or food-related items and toiletries in a hard-sided vehicle/trailer/RV or in wildlife-proof lockers.


  • Be aware of any restrictions your location may have.
  • Buy and burn local firewood, not deadfall or surrounding trees.
Don't move firewood

Moving firewood, even just a few kilometers to or from a campground, is a common way for invasive insects and diseases to spread. Purchase local firewood and burn it in provided fire pits or leave it on-site to avoid transporting pests that may destroy our forests. Help us save forests.


  • Many campgrounds have quiet hours where reduced noise levels are required. Please be respectful and maintain reasonable noise levels.
  • Respect nature: leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but pictures.
  • Please leave your site as tidy as, or tidier than, you found it.


  • Some group campgrounds are for legally constituted groups.
  • Check with your location for complete details and guidelines.
