Random Wilderness Camping
No trace camping should be practiced, fires are not
permitted in the parks backcountry, so a backpacking
stove is essential.
Sites should be chosen carefully to avoid excessive
impact. Choose an area well off the road, away from water
and the trail. The park has stringent guidelines which
you should inquire about. All food must be hung properly
to avoid problems with bears.
When you're planning your trip, keep in mind that there
is a limit on the number of nights you can camp at any
There are four random camping areas in the wilderness,
Otterhead, Amiskwi and Ice River and Porcupine Valleys.
