Camping Practices

Campfires must be built in fire rings or in grills where provided. Burn only dead, fallen wood. Cutting of standing (living or dead) trees is prohibited. Campfires are not allowed at Julian Bay beach on Stockton Island, on Raspberry Island beaches; and on beaches adjacent to campsites where fire receptacles are provided. Open fires will be prohibited during times of high fire danger.

Quiet Hours
In order to insure a quality camping experience, quiet hours are enforced from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Tent Pads
Some sites are provided with outlined tent pads. Please make use of them where provided.

Garbage and Waste
All visitors must be prepared to carry their refuse out of the park. A few bear resistant garbage containers and recycling bins are provided for campers using the Quarry Bay and Presque Isle campgrounds on Stockton Island. Do not dispose of garbage in toilets, do not bury it, and do not throw it in the lake.

Where vault toilets are not provided, take care to dispose of human waste properly. Dig a hole six to eight inches deep and 200 feet from the nearest body of water. Cover thoroughly.

Pets are best left at home. The excursion service will not transport pets on regularly scheduled trips. Any pets on the islands must be kept on a leash that is six feet or shorter, and never left unattended.
