Due to the remote nature of these campgrounds, cleaning and sanitizing of shared surfaces is infrequent and users should be ready to sanitize high-touch
surfaces upon their arrival. Be prepared with your own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. Note that cleaning supplies may be wildlife attractants, and should
be stored in your food locker and away from your tent. When campgrounds are open and where
it is feasible, outhouses will be open. Please help to limit the spread of COVID-19 by
maintaining physical distancing from other campers.
