    Camping Notes

    • **Backcountry permit required for winter camping.

      • Campers must camp close enough to the lake to ensure access to the outhouse.
      • Fires are not permitted.
      • If visitors build a quinsy or igloo, it should be collapsed on departure as it may deteriorate and become unsafe for other users.

    Note: Any maps and map views are for general information only. Do not rely on them for navigation or to determine legal boundaries.
