This camp belongs to the Viking Council, Boy Scouts of America.  Therefore, as Scouts and Scouters, it belongs to you.  Please treat it as if it were yours, and preserve it for future generations.

Vehicles - The camp speed limit is 10 mph.  Each passenger must have a seat belt.  No passengers are allowed in the back of trucks, or on trailers, tailgates, running boards, etc.  All vehicles are to remain on the road or in designated parking areas. All gear is to be carried into the site.  ATVís, dirt bikes, and snowmobiles are prohibited.

Fires - Campfires are to be built only in designated rings.  State law requires that campfires not exceed three feet in diameter and three feet in height.  The Camp Ranger may prohibit campfires during extremely dry conditions.
