A camping permit is required for overnight camping on state forest land. Certain watersheds near exceptional value or high quality waters are posted closed to camping. Camping permits can be obtained in advance by calling or stopping by the district office during business hours. Special permits are needed for groups larger than ten people. Please call or write for details.
With the exception of designated natural areas, primitive backpack camping is allowed throughout the state forest. Primitive backpack campers do not need a permit if they stay no more than one night at any campsite.
