How Can I be a Responsible Visitor?

  • Motorized and mechanical equipment, such as chainsaws, motor vehicles and bicycles, are prohibited in all wilderness areas.
  • Signs indicating "Wilderness" and "Closed Road" or "Closed Route" are placed at various intervals. Vehicles can be parked outside the wilderness boundary; however, the boundary is set back 30 feet from unmaintained dirt roads and 300 feet on paved roads.
  • Horses are permitted, however you may be required to carry feed.
  • Camping is permitted but limited to 14 days. After 14 days, campers must relocate at least 25 miles from the previous site.
  • Gathering wood for campfires is limited to dead and down materials.  Live vegetation can not be cut.
  • Hunting, fishing, and non-commercial trapping are allowed under state and local laws.
  • Pets are allowed, but please keep your pets under control at all times.
  • Removal, disturbance, or attempting to remove archaeological materials is a felony. Selling, receiving, purchasing, transporting, exchanging or offering to do so is prohibited by law.
