Permits/Reservations: Camping permits are limited year round and must be obtained from the Wilderness Information Center. Reservations recommended between May 1 and September 30.
Food Storage Method: All food, garbage, and scented items must be stored in approved bear canisters 24 hours day in the entire Sol Duc/High Divide Loop/Mink Lake area including all camps adjacent to and enclosed by the Deer Lake Trail, High Divide Trail, and Sol Duc River Trail (High Divide Loop), and adjacent camps along the Mink Lake Trail, East High Divide Trail, and Cat Basin area.
Location and sites: Mink Lake and a few small sites along Little Divide. Camping limits are in place for all areas in the Sol Duc/Seven Lakes Basin, Cat Basin, Mink Lake, Little Divide and Hoh Lake/C.B Flats. Camping is in designated sites only. Group sites are located at Sevenmile Camp, Sol Duc Park, Deer Lake, and at C.B. Flats along the Hoh Lake Trail.
Toilet Facilities: No toilets in this area. Urinate on rocks or on the trail at least 200 feet from campsites and water sources. This prevents deer and goats from pulling up plants to get at the salt in urine. Always bury solid waste 6-8" deep and 200 feet from campsites and water sources.
Water Sources: Various streams. Always boil, filter, or chemically treat your drinking water to prevent getting Giardia.
Stock: Camp only in designated stock sites at Horsehead and Deer Lake (llamas only).
