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.

Once in the adjacent Provincial Recreation Area, trails for OHV, snowmobile, horseback riding, and boating upstream on the Athabasca River allow access into the Wildland Provincial Park.  Off-trail use is prohibited, please use the existing trails only.
