Reduce the environmental footprint by informing the customer of leave no trace seven principles:
1. Plan Ahead and Prepare. Prepare for extreme weather, hazards, and emergencies.
2. Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces. Concentrate use on existing trails and campsites.
3. Dispose of Waste Properly. Pack it in, pack it out. Inspect your campsite and rest areas for trash or spilled foods. Pack out all trash, leftover food, and litter.
4. Leave What You Find. Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
5. Minimize Campfire Impacts. Avoid stepping on the vegetation to fetch wood, get a wooden pocket at the reception.
6. Campfires can cause lasting impacts to the backcountry. Use a lightweight stove for cooking and enjoy a candle lantern for light.
7. Where fires are permitted, use established fire rings, fire pans, or mound fires.
8. Keep fires small. Only use sticks from the ground that can be broken by hand.
9. Burn all wood and coals to ash, put out campfires completely, then scatter cool ashes.
10. Respect Wildlife. Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
11. Be Considerate of Others. Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
