Stay safe while camping

  • Camp at least 50m from the water’s edge.
  • Avoid places where animals and livestock drink.
  • Avoid returning to the same spot at the water’s edge to fill your bucket.
  • Never prepare food, wash dishes or do other tasks near the water’s edge or next to sloping banks.
  • Fill up your bucket and move away from the edge of the water.
  • Dispose of food scraps, fishing rubbish and other waste in bins away from your campsite, check that other campers have not left these things behind.
