Give Us A Hand
Waste not, want not - Keep trash out of vault toilets. The toilets must be pumped periodically. Trash clogs the pumper. If open toilets are clogged with trash, they will be closed permanently.
Catholes – Many toilet facilities will be closed due to reduced budgets and fewer personnel to maintain them. Please dispose of human waste properly by digging a small hole. Leave No Traceprinciples recommend catholes should be at least 200 feet from the river or any water source. Cover and disguise hole. Toilet tissue should be packed out as trash, not buried.
Pack it in – Pack it out – Trash hauling contracts are expensive. Most of our trash collection is being eliminated as one cost saving measure. Visitors should be prepared to take their trash home for disposal and recycling. Help us keep the park from looking like the picture below.
