Use only dead wood. Avoid cutting down snags. These standing dead trees provide homes for many forest animals.
Fish and soapy water do not mix. Please wash your dishes in a pot of water and then dump on the ground far from a lake or stream. You can take baths without polluting as well.
Drown your campfire. Make sure it is out by feeling the ashes with your hand. If any ashes feel warm use more water.
Please pick up your trash from your site and use dumpster’s.
DO NOT FEED BEARS! The White Mountains are home to the American Black Bear, Ursus Americanus, Bears eating human food lead to human-bear conflicts which may result in the death of the bear and injury to humans. Wild bears are shy and prefer to stay away from people but FOOD ODORS ATTRACT BEARS. Keep all food stored in vehicles, never in your tent. Dispose of garbage promptly in nearby campground dumpster’s. Never dump, burn or scatter food near your campsite or in the woods. Never leave food outdoors for wildlife or pets.
