|Boundary Waters Rules & Regulations
Please remember to "Leave No Trace"
Permit and stubs become invalid when the trip leader exits the wilderness.
You may not exceed the limit at any time or anywhere (on water, portages, campsites) in the BWCAW.
Smaller groups increase your wilderness experience and decrease the impacts.
TOILET FACILITIES AND WATER QUALITY
Latrines are not garbage cans and should be used for the intended purpose only. Personal waste items such as cigarettes, cotton swabs, or plastic feminine products should always be packed out and should never go into the latrines.
If you're not near a latrine, dig a small hole 6 to 8 inches deep at least 150 feet or more back from the water's edge. When finished, fill hole and cover with needles and leaves.
Bathe and wash dishes at least 150 feet from lakes and streams. All soaps pollute water including soaps labeled "biodegradable."
Containers of fuel, insect repellent, medicines, personal toilet articles, and other items that are not foods or beverages are the only cans and bottles you may keep in their original containers.
Food may be packaged in plastic containers that must be packed out with you.
Bringing a small camp stove may be a better idea because it heats food more quickly, has less impact than a fire, and comes in handy during rainy weather.
Due to the potential fire danger, fire restrictions may be put into effect. Check on current conditions just prior to your trip. You may be required to use a camp stove if there is a campfire ban.
If you build a fire, burn only dead wood found lying on the ground.
Drown your fire with water any time you are going to be away from your camp or at bedtime. Stir the ashes until they are cold to the touch with a bare hand.
Make camp early in the day to ensure finding an available campsite.
It is illegal to cut live vegetation for any reason.
You may camp up to fourteen (14) consecutive days on a specific site.
All equipment and personal property must be carried out with you at the end of each trip.
The use of metal detectors is prohibited.
