Planning to Camp on Crown Land?

July 3, 2019

Be sure to check if camping is allowed on the public lands where you plan to camp. Rules vary from site to site. Please act responsibly to help protect the natural environment. Here are some tips:

  • Always pick up litter and take garbage with you
  • Avoid sensitive features such as wetlands, streams and wildlife habitat
  • Respect other users of Crown lands
  • Stay on existing trails
  • Do not harm, kill or collect plants, trees, habitat or wildlife you do not have permission to hunt
  • Community Safety and Well-being Plan: In a unique show of collaboration, seven north Hastings County municipalities have embarked on a project that aims to improve quality of life in the region. Successive provincial governments have given Ontario municipalities a deadline of January, 2021, to create a community safety and well-being plan. In North Hastings, rather than going it alone, councils from Bancroft, Hastings Highlands, Wollaston, Limerick, Faraday, Carlow/Mayo, and Tudor and Cashel adopted a collaborative approach that is fairly unique among over 400 Ontario municipalities.
