Leave No Trace!

Challenge, beauty, adventure, discovery and solitude can be a part of everyone’s visit if you practice and pass on Leave No Trace ethics. You are one of the Park’s most important stewards! Check the website, lnt.org for more information and follow these guidelines:

Plan Ahead and Prepare

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces

Dispose of Waste Properly

Leave What You Find


Minimize Campfire Impacts

Respect Wildlife


Be Considerate of Other Visitors


By practicing the seven principles of Leave No Trace and our Park rules, you can visit Governor Baxter’s most generous gift to all of us, Baxter State Park, in the "right unspoiled way".

Thank you for making a difference
and being a steward of the Park!
