Camping is permitted throughout the State Forest. There are numerous designated primitive campsites without developed facilities within the State Forest that can be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. However, primitive backpack camping is allowed throughout the entire forest. Campers are required to obtain a camping permit at no charge. Camping in groups of 10 or more requires a Letter of Authorization from the District Forester. Primitive backpack campers do not need a permit if they stay no more than one night at any campsite.
