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 10 people or organized events. Four sites are available for motorized camping.
Primitive backpack camping is permitted along all trails, but the Beartown Rocks and sections of the Little Clear Creek trails. Primitive backpack campers do not need a permit if they stay no more than one night at any campsite.
