No Soap in Streams, Creeks or Lakes: Even Biodegradable Soap is not good for the poor fish downstream.
Bring a bucket or wash tub – Wash dishes, clothes & yourself 100′ from streams & lakes
Food put away & dishes washed up before bed time. Keeping a clean camp will lessen the chances of wildlife or a bear visit
Use existing campsite or rock campfire ring to prevent impacting new areas
Pitch tent in cleared camp spots only (when primitive camping). No need to trample new spots.
Do not set a tent up in a meadow, next to a creek or on a lake shore. It’s too fragile an environment.
Bring extra trash bags (heavy duty lawn type is best) for cleaning any litter you might find at your selected camp site.
Sometimes you’ll need to shovel out the whole fire pit (full of glass and trash) to start a fresh new campfire. Building your fire on top of somebody else’s mess means you’ll be inhaling all their left-over garbage.
Camp Kitchen Outdoors
Try to keep all food, drinks and cooking to one area of the camp. If you plan to cook over the campfire, this choice will make much more sense. Setting up kitchen area in between the tent and the campfire is usually an excellent spot. Having the vehicle close by for proper food storage is also advised, or use bear boxes if available. If you choose to hang your food in the tree, bring adequate ropes and bags.
The last person still up around the campfire at night should double check the cleanlness camp before retiring for bed. Chances are there is a half-eaten snack or left over beverage that could attract the animals. Oh no, the GARBAGE!! Don’t forgot to put your garbage bag away at night, or dispose of it in a proper trash container. Double bag your garbage if you are concerned with it leaking or smelling up the vehicle.
