- The use of designated sites is always preferred on state lands. In areas where dispersed camping is permitted and necessary, set up camp at least 150 feet (70 adult paces) from any trail, shoreline, road, stream, spring, lake or pond; and under 3500 feet in elevation.
- Camping permits are required for parties with eight or more people, and/or any party remaining in the same site for more than 3 nights. There are different regulations for many regions; it is best to call the regional offices or us for specifics. Their phone numbers are: region 6 in Ray Brook (518) 897-1300, region 5 in Canton (315) 265-3090. You are responsible for obtaining your own camping permit (free). It is best to do this as early as possible.
- Use dead and down wood for fires. Campfires should be contained in established fire rings. Do not cut down live trees or branches! We recommend using camping stove for cooking to reduce impact on campsite. It is unlawful to leave a fire unattended. To be sure your fire is out drown it with water until cool to touch.
- If no outhouse is provided at camp, it is essential to properly dispose of human waste. When treated properly the waste will decompose, with improper treatment disease-causing organisms will be spread into waterways and cause extensive health problems. If the party is small individual cat holes can be dug 150 feet from water or trail. Dig 6 inches deep in a dry well drained area. A latrine should be dug for larger groups not deeper than 17 inches, and 1 foot wide. Toilet paper should be burned or carried out.
- If you carry it in carry it out! This includes all food and trash. Do not bury food or trash. The next party appreciates a clean campsite. Leave your camping area cleaner than you found it.
- Do not use soap or shampoo in the water, this includes organic soaps! It takes at least three weeks for it to decompose if at all.
- Wash dishes and yourself away from water or trail 150 feet and dispose of dirty dishwater as you would of your own body wastes.
- Please respect the woods, animals and the plants that live here. Do not pick any flowers or disturb wildlife.
- For your protection hang your food at least 10′ high suspended between two trees or use a bear resistant canister.
- The parasite Giardia is found in our water. Drinking water should be treated by filtering, boiling or chemical method such as iodine or tablets.
