Leave No Trace!

Thousands of visitors to Carson National Forest have a tremendous impact on the land. It's up to all of us to minimize our impact, to travel softly, leaving no trace of our visit so that future generations can enjoy the woods and mountains we all love.

  • You don't have to camp in a campground.
  • National Forests mean room to roam.
  • You can camp anywhere in Carson National Forest.
  • Some restrictions apply.
  • Please check with the local Forest Service Office.
