Camping Tips

  • Always lock your camping trailer when you leave the vicinity
  • Avoid camping alone in isolated areas
  • Avoid leaving your camping gear (cook stove, lantern, ice chest, chairs, etc.) out in the open unattended
  • Avoid walking alone at night
  • Before taking weapons with you, be aware of regulations. In many parks and wildlife refuges, it is against the law to carry weapons
  • Carry a spare lock so you can use storage containers available at many parks
  • Familiarize yourself with local emergency locations and phone numbers in case of accidents or crime
  • Get to know your neighbors and help protect each others' belongings
  • Install a locking device on the trailer towing hitch, so your trailer cannot be towed away
  • Park your vehicle so it cannot be blocked by another vehicle in case of an emergency
  • Report any suspicious activities and crimes to the proper law enforcement authorities
  • Use a chain and lock to secure propane tanks, extra fuel tanks, portable generators, spare tires, bicycles, etc.
