PITCHING THE TENT Flat sheltered shady spot close to water (but not too close!) Anticipate the wind Watch out for branches in danger of falling Higher ground avoids low-lying water and colder temperatures Consider other campers Watch out for bugs
LEAVE NO TRACE Keep your site clean - cleanup as you go along - don't wait till you are packing up Consider the environment Use established trails and campsites Don't build fires Don't use a stove in your tent!!!
HUT ETIQUETTE Sign the hut book - on arrival and departure Pay all required fees Respect other occupants - keep tidy and quiet Leave boots outside Report damage Extinguish any fires Clean up - rather leave the hut cleaner than you found it Leave at least as much firewood as you found there
