Picnicking Notes

Campfires are allowed only in picnic areas with fire grates. Camp stoves (liquid or gas) and self-contained charcoal grills may be used at all locations. Do not feed any wild animals, including birds. It is unhealthy and encourages aggressive behavior. All food, trash, coolers, and cooking tools must be kept secure in a bear-proof container unless in immediate use. Overnight camping is not allowed in any picnic area.

Be Alert for Bears

  • Carry bear spray and know how to use it.
  • Hike in groups of three or more people.
  • Make noise in areas with limited visibility.
  • Do not run! Back away slowly.
