Campers must use designated sites only. A camping permit is required and can be obtained at the Visitor Center or at the trailheads. The permit instructions must be followed and it must be compeltely filled out. You should leave your campsite in such a condition that no one could tell you have camped there. Cutting of vegetation, littering, trenching, piling of rocks and other activities that detract from the natural beauty are, of course, prohibited.

Water is available from springs and streams except in dry periods. This water must be treated to make it safe for consumption.

Primitive toilets are available at the designated campsites.

Fire: All open fires are prohibited along the trails and at the Raven Point Campsite. This campsite is operated on a stove-only basis. Campfires are permitted at the Small Wilds Campsite, except in very dry conditions.

Plants and Animals: The collection of plants and animals along the trail is prohibited by state law. Berries, nuts, and other fruits may be picked in season.

Permits are required for backcountry backpacking camping.
