Camping & campfire tips

Remember that overnight camping and open fires are strictly prohibited in the Athabasca Dunes and all other ecological reserves.  Camping is permitted within the Wildland Park, but access is restricted to foot only. Due to its protected designation, off-highway vehicles are also not permitted within ecological reserves.

Protect our natural resources and reduce conflicts with the following camping tips:

  • Random campers should stay a minimum of 30 meters away from any watercourses
  • Respect other campers and keep noise down to an acceptable level
  • Practice no-trace camping

Follow the following fire safety tips in the Athabasca Sand Dunes and Wood Buffalo National Park:

  • Open fires must be used wisely. Even a small campfire has the potential to become an unmanageable wildfire.
  • Always be sure to use the fire receptacle provided in the campground.
  • If your campsite does not have a receptacle, build your fire on rocks and sand, in an open area (not under a tree).
  • Keep your campfire small.
  • Never leave your campfire unattended.
  • When extinguishing your campfire, soak it, then soak it again.
  • Remember your campfire is not out until you can touch it.
