The code of behavior that campers should follow to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Respect Quiet Hours 

Absolutely respecting designated quiet hours at your campsite is essential for creating a peaceful and enjoyable environment for everyone. Adhering to quiet hours, typically from 10 PM to 6 AM, demonstrates consideration and respect for fellow campers who may be resting or seeking a tranquil experience in nature. Keeping noise levels to a minimum during these hours ensures that everyone can have a good night’s sleep and a positive camping experience.

LEAVE NO TRACE

“leave no trace” is a principle and an ethic that promotes responsible outdoor ethics, particularly in activities like camping, hiking, and other outdoor recreational pursuits. The concept is to minimize the impact of human activities on the natural environment and to leave the wilderness as pristine as possible for future generations to enjoy. The idea is to enjoy the outdoors responsibly while avoiding any lasting impact on the ecosystem.

Respect wildlife

  • Be mindful and considerate of the animals that live in the area where you are camping.
  • Do not feed or approach wild animals. Feeding wild animals can disrupt their natural behavior and cause them to become dependent on humans for food. It can also be dangerous, as some animals may become aggressive in their pursuit of food.
  • Do not attempt to touch or interact with wild animals, as this can cause them stress and anxiety.
  • Keep a safe distance: Observe animals from a distance and avoid approaching them too closely. This can help prevent the animals from feeling threatened or frightened. Take steps to avoid disturbing them. When taking pictures, use a zoom mode for close up.
