Garbage and Recycling

• During your stay, it is mandatory to ensure your campsite is clean at all times. Litter will attract wildlife to your site and cause them to rely on human interaction as a source of food. We want to make sure that the wildlife stay wild! • Please collect and dispose of your garbage & recycling nightly at our centralized garbage/recycling center located on the main road close to Group campsites 501 and 502. (See map) • Please ensure recycling is sorted by Containers (plastics and glass) and Fibers (cardboard and paper). We also have receptacles for beer and liquor bottles, single use green propane cylinders, and batteries (located at gatehouse & store). Please do not contaminate these receptacles with garbage.

Washrooms

• C  omfort Stations (including flush toilets, showers, and laundry facilities) are located in both Circle and Hill Campgrounds and Day Use Area. Vault Privies (out houses) are located throughout the park. • Our staff work very hard to maintain the cleanliness of these buildings and rely on the visitors in order to keep them clean. Please do not bring your pets into the bathrooms or shower facilities.

Water

• Taps for drinking water are located throughout the campground and day use areas. Our water is potable and routinely tested for water quality assurance. • Trailers are unable to connect to these water taps and campers must fill their tanks at the trailer filling station (BLUE water towers) prior to setting up on the campsite. • “Grey water” or wastewater from your sink or wash tub contains food particles, grease, soap and dirt. This water is unhealthy and may attract wildlife therefore it must not be disposed of on or around your campsite. Please utilize a washbasin and dispose of the grey water at any of the vault toilets or the trailer dumping station. • PLEASE DO NOT WASH YOUR DISHES AT DRINKING WATER TAPS OR BATHROOMS!

Pets

• Pets are welcome to visit our park with their families! For their safety and the safety of others, pets must be kept on a leash that is no more than two meters in length at ALL times. Dogs are able to swim at the boat launches/docks and cedar campground canoe launch but are prohibited from the main beach areas, comfort stations and showers. Please keep your pets quiet and under control so they do not disturb other campers and never leave pets unattended. Please clean up after your pet; doggy bags are available for free at the Gatehouse.

Smoking and Vaping

Smoking tobacco or cannabis, or using an electronic cigarette to vape any substance (including cannabis) is not permitted in certain areas of provincial parks, including: • enclosed public places, including washrooms; • sheltered areas with a roof and more than two walls; • children’s playgrounds and 20 m from the perimeter of the playground; • sporting areas, such as volleyball and beach volleyball areas, designated swimming areas, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, and adjacent spectator areas, as well as 20 m from the perimeter of the sporting or spectator areas.

Campfires

• T ransporting firewood allows invasive species such as the emerald ash borer to spread throughout our province. Firewood must be purchased locally or from our park to prevent the spread of invasive species to our area. Please do not cut trees, use dead limbs or fallen branches as they are all a part of the wonderful ecosystem of the park! • Firewood and kindling can be purchased at our Park Store. Firewood is also available at the gatehouse when the park store is closed.

Picnic tables

• C  ampsites are equipped with one picnic table per site. If there is no picnic table on your site upon check in, please notify a staff member or call the park office and we will supply your campsite with one. Please DO NOT remove picnic tables from any adjacent vacant campsites or day use areas. • If you are camping with friends and family on multiple campsites and require additional tables, please feel free to move them to one of your sites and replace when you are finished.

Camping and Severe Weather Safety Many people enjoy the outdoors and so it’s important to know what to do when threatening weather approaches. Being aware of your surroundings is an important part of staying safe in the outdoors. Identify in advance the places where you could take shelter if threatening weather approaches. Here are some tips on what to do if you encounter the following phenomena.

Lightning, Strong Winds and Large Hail

If in a tent or tent-trailer, move to the closest comfort station/washroom or your hard-topped vehicle. If no shelter is available, find the lowest-lying area. Crouch down and cover your head. Avoid being near the tallest object, such as an isolated tree. “30-30” Lightning rule: Take appropriate shelter when you can count 30 seconds or fewer between the lightning and the thunder and remain sheltered for 30 minutes after the last thunder.

Tornadoes

Move to a campground comfort station/washroom. Crouch and cover your head. If there is no comfort station or washroom nearby, evacuate your tent or camper van. Lie down flat in a low-lying area and cover your head with your hands. DO NOT get into your vehicle to escape a tornado! Strong tornados can overturn vehicles. Environment Canada issues Severe Weather Watches as a heads up that severe weather is likely to develop within two to six hours. A Severe Weather Warning is issued as severe weather is occurring or just about to occur. A good way to stay current with the latest weather forecasts and warnings is to listen to Environment Canada’s Weatheradio broadcast. Compact, battery powered Weatheradio receivers are available in most electronic stores. Environment Canada’s Weatheradio web at www.msc.ec.gc.ca/msv/weatheradio/fact_sheet_e.cfm has a full list of transmitter locations.

Bicycling at Emily Bicycles are a great way to get around the park. They have no emissions and have great health benefits for cyclists. Park staff regularly use bicycles while at work. When cycling at the park there are some important safety considerations to keep in mind. • For everyone’s safety please be aware of pedestrian and vehicle traffic while bicycling at Emily. • Bicycles are allowed only on campground roads and are NOT permitted on the marsh trail. • The Highway Traffic Act applies to all roads in a provincial park. • Cyclists should ride in single file, keeping to the far right hand side of the roadway. • During lowlight conditions bicycles must be equipped with lights and reflectors. • Ontario law states that: “All children under the age of 18 must wear bicycle helmets”. If children under 16 years of age are not wearing helmets, their parents may be charged. And youth (ages16-17) not wearing helmets may be charged. For more information on bicycling safety please speak to a park warden.

Safety Information

Water Safety – It’s Your Responsibility 1. T here are no lifeguards on our beaches. Water safety is your responsibility at all times. 2. Take the steps to be safe around water. Learning how to swim and water survival techniques help keep us all safe. 3. Always supervise children and non-swimmers by watching them when they are in or around the water. 4. Ensure children and non-swimmers wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD) in or around the water. 5. Swim in only designated swimming areas. When the water is rough, or conditions are not clear – STAY OUT! Never swim alone. You should always swim with a buddy. 6. Using a floatie? Offshore winds often blow inflatables out into dangerous waters. Ensure inflatable rafts or toys are used in shallow water areas only and pay attention to changing wind conditions. 7. Be responsible. Avoid substance use when involved in water-related recreational activities. 8. Protect your neck. Never dive into shallow or murky water. 9. If you suspect a drowning or any other type of water emergency, call 911 and contact the park office immediately.

Our beaches are unsupervised. When water is rough, STAY OUT!

ONTARIO PARKS BEACH POSTING fact sheet Recreational water quality is routinely monitored at Ontario Parks designated beaches. Samples are tested at Public Health Ontario Laboratories for Escherichia coli (E.coli), an organism found in the intestines of warm-blooded animals.

How you can help

Water Quality Factors

• Do not feed birds or other wildlife • Leave nothing behind- dispose of all garbage/food waste • Use designated pet beaches –pets are not permitted in Ontario Parks public beaches o Do not let children swim in soiled diapers o Do not use shampoos or soaps in beach water

Recreational water quality is influenced by a number of factors, and can change between sampling periods. Influences include: • Heavy rainfall • Large numbers of water fowl • High winds or wave activity • Large number of swimmers

Ontario Parks guests can help maintain our beach water quality by following these simple guidelines:

Beach Posting

Ontario Parks staff post signage at beaches when E.coli levels in the water exceed provincial standards. Signage is placed to warn bathers that the beach water may be unsafe for swimming. Swimming in beaches that are posted for elevated bacterial levels may cause: • Skin infections/rash • Ear, eye, nose and throat infections • Gastrointestinal illnes (if water is consumed) Beach postings are based on E.coli counts in beach water samples taken within the past 24 hours, and are removed when test results show bacterial levels are acceptable. Beach water quality can change at any time and guests should avoid swimming during and after storms, floods, or heavy rainfall.

Lost Child

It’s something no one likes to think about, but every year there are children who become separated from their parents. This is a very stressful occurrence but it can be made easier by providing precise information about your child. Here are some key points: 1. Notify Park Staff immediately. 2. Provide as much details as possible (description, location last seen, distinguishing features). 3. Remain calm. 4. Remain at your campsite or a location that your child may return to. Advise staff where you are. 5. If your child returns on his/her own notify a staff member immediately so we may call off the search.

Park conservation Turtle Box Conservation Project

For years, Emily Provincial Park staff have witnessed the predation of turtle nests by skunks, raccoons and even crows! In late spring, female turtles leave the river in search for the perfect nesting spot and many choose Emily’s day-use beach area. Unfortunately, the mother turtle’s scent leads the egg predators right to the nests; many were dug up before the staff noticed the eggs were laid. In order to reduce the number of predated turtles, Emily Staff cover them with a wooden framed mesh barrier to keep the predators out! If you observe a painted or snapping turtle making a nest, please keep your distance to allow for momma turtle to lay her eggs successfully. Please note the location of the nest and notify park staff as soon as possible. With your help we can reduce the number of predated nests and ensure a healthy population of turtles remain in the Pigeon River area.

Hazardous Tree removal

Emily Park’s Snapping Turtle

Spike is a common snapping turtle, who needed a home, and found one with us in 2014. As a baby turtle he was removed from the wild by an individual, and later confiscated by the MNRF. Since he spent so long in a tank he cannot be released into the wild. He has found a new purpose and helps the staff recount his story to our visitors about the importance of turtles, how we can help protect them, and how to move them safely off the road. Spike has an outdoor area adjacent to the Park Office and an indoor habitat to spend the winter months. Check out the bulletin boards to learn when you can meet Spike.

HELP US KEEP THE PARK CLEAN In the wise words of Chief Seattle, we encourage our visitors to “Take only memories, leave only footprints”. Our park maintenance staff work very hard to keep the park in the best shape possible, but with over 300 campsites and a maintenance staff of less than 10, it can be a big job, especially during our peak season – July and August. Here are a few ways we would love for you to lend a hand! - Keep your campsite clean, this includes all litter (i.e. bottle caps, candy wrappers and cigarette butts) - Please dispose of waste at the central garbage/recycling centre on your way out of the park (your firepit and campsite post are not appropriate locations). - Firewood bags can be disposed of with garbage, we no longer collect them. Use them to collect your garbage in order to extend its life. - Pick-up litter when you see it on vacant sites, near the park store, beach or playground. We do our best, but with your help the park will be more beautiful for everyone to enjoy! - Finally, littering in a Provincial Park is an Offence, for more information please see the Summary of Offences on pg. 19, or speak to a park warden. Thanks for all your help!

Ontario Parks I Emily

Over the past few years Emily Provincial Park has removed a large number of hazardous trees. These trees were identified using a certified risk assessment. Most trees that were cut down were ash, either infected or prone to be infected by the invasive Emerald Ash Borer. The Emerald Ash Borer lays its eggs under the bark of an ash tree. The hatching larvae will eat and create tunnels, causing girdling in the tree, cutting off the flow of food and water. Branch mortality leads to whole tree mortality, and eventually causes tree death. These trees were in danger of falling on campsites, park roads and trails. Over the years, we have had to remove more than two hundred trees across the park. Unfortunately for some of our campsites, the privacy, shade, and quality may have changed. Restoration work has already begun and will continue as we plant more local species to replace the cut trees. Further tree risk assessments will be ongoing as we continue to address any hazard tree removal on an ongoing basis. We were able to mill some of the ash and use this lumber for picnic tables and benches in the park. For more information on the Emerald Ash Borer, please visit the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry website.

A single piece of firewood can destroy millions of trees. Did you know that transpor�ng firewood allows invasive species such as the emerald ash borer to spread, as they hide under the bark where you can’t see them? Something as simple as bringing your own firewood when you travel to or from your favourite campsite could threaten and destroy thousands, even millions, of trees. Please leave firewood at home to prevent the spread of these pests. A be�er alterna�ve is to purchase firewood locally around the park; however please check for pest infesta�on and avoid purchasing ash firewood. To help slow the spread of emerald ash borer Ontario Parks will con�nue to seize firewood transported from all areas regulated by the Canadian Food Inspec�on Agency (CFIA). You could face penal�es of up to $50,000 and/or prosecu�on if you move firewood out of an area regulated for a quaran�ned pest without prior approval from the CFIA. For more informa�on and the latest updates about emerald ash borer and regulated areas, please visit www.inspec�on.gc.ca or contact the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.

The Discovery Program at Emily Provincial Park is your link to the natural world around you. Have a question specific to natural heritage? Not sure what that bug is crawling on your site? Perhaps you would like to know more about the history of Emily Provincial Park. Take a photo, record that sound or write down your questions and talk to any one of our discovery staff members and we will gladly find you an answer! You can also ask our biologist from Ontario Parks by using the hashtag #AskanOPNaturalist on Twitter. We also offer educational programs for visitors of all ages. Each program will have you discovering and learning through a variety of activities including crafts, to guided walks, evening talks, and special guests. We aim to make your stay enjoyable and educational!

Children’s Programs

Getting outdoors and connecting with nature is an important part of child’s development. It builds their confidence, imagination, teaches responsibility and most importantly creates a unique sense of wonder for kids that no other environment can provide. Every day children ask questions about the earth and the life that it supports and we want to nurture that curiosity. These programs are aimed towards those aged 3-15 and include a wide variety of activities for different types of learners to enjoy.

Evening Programs

Are you more of a night owl? Evening programs are regularly presented Thursday to Saturday and this is where our education staff take the time to put on some more elaborate performances. You can find everything from campfires, to interactive games such as jeopardy, myth busters, guided night hikes, sing-alongs and even some scripted performances. All ages are welcome!

Special Events and Guests:

We are so lucky to be nestled in the heart of the Kawarthas, surrounded by some amazing talent, wonderful organizations, and dedicated volunteers. They all offer amazing programs that you won’t want to miss during your stay. For a list of these prescheduled events, head to page 7, check out the park bulletin boards, our social media platforms and online at https://www.ontarioparks.com/park/emily/events

Self-Guided Activities

For almost a decade, Emily Provincial Park has been creating fun and educational pamphlets called Self-Guided Quest. On the rare occasion that there is no scheduled programming, we suggest swinging by the Park Store and picking up one of these amazing activity sheets. These are available all summer long and offer opportunities for visitors to explore and learn about Emily Provincial Park, the natural world, and the environmental history of the region through self-guided activities. There is a wide variety of options and there is something for everyone; big and small, old and young, veteran or new camper to Emily. We 8

have 5 different categories to choose from including: Habitat, Historical, Species Protection, Invasive Species, and Camping. With over 15 different self-guided activities and several new ones added every summer you will always have something to do, even on rainy days. When completed the quest, attend one of our Natural Heritage programs, and have it signed by one of the staff members there at the end of the activity. Remember to return to the Park Store so you can claim the prize awaiting for you! Prize bags are limited to 1 per camper

Interpretive Marsh Trail

While Emily Provincial Park doesn’t have the longest trail system in Ontario Parks we do have a really fun and interactive one that you and the family can explore! Over the past couple of years we have spent some time fixing and improving our trails and will continue to do so this year. Last summer we installed 5 new interpretive signs, with more to come, that tell the story of the forest in Emily Provincial Park. Learn about the different types of trees in the area and how to identify them based on key characteristics such as colour, bark composition, and leaf design. Learning how to identify trees can be a daunting task, and memorization can be even more difficult. Before you hit the trail, stop by the Park Store and pick up one of our Interpretive Trail Books. At each sign you will find a laminated leaf. Place your booklet down on top of the leaf and use a pencil or crayon to rub down the page to collect your leaf print. It works best when you use the side of the utensil rather then the pointed end. At the end you will have created your own ID book to use in the future when on hikes around the area to identify different trees you see.

Charter Challenge

Here at Emily Provincial Park we are a proud supporter of the Ontario Children’s Outdoor Charter which aims to get children outside and to discover the wonders of nature.

Important Notices Wondering what to do with your empty propane cylinder? Ontario Parks strongly encourages visitors to use refillable propane cylinders and to reuse them as many times as safe to do so. This helps to keep our parks litter-free and reduce waste! Single use (non-refillable) propane cylinders should be deposited in Orange Drop collection cages found in many provincial parks. Single use cylinders may also be brought to an Orange Drop collection site. Visit www.makethedrop.ca and search by postal code to find out where to drop-off your cylinders and other household hazardous waste. Safely disposing of your propane cylinders ensures that any remaining gases will be captured and the metal, valves and other elements will be recovered and reused. Orange Drop is responsible for managing household hazardous waste such as propane cylinders, single-use batteries, empty oil containers and other products that require special care for recycling or safe disposal. Because of risks to people and the environment: • Don’t discharge leftover propane into the atmosphere, even if the cylinder comes with a device to do this. • Don’t deposit any propane cylinders into your blue box. • Don’t put cylinders in the garbage. When it comes to the environment, we all have a responsibility!

Important Notices

Ticks and Lyme Disease Do ticks and Lyme disease make you wary of going outdoors this summer? By being aware of ticks and understanding the role they play in spreading Lyme disease you are taking the first step to protect yourself and your loved ones.

SUMMER

Leaves of three – let them be! Identifying and treating poison ivy

There are many different species of ticks and not all of them carry Lyme disease. The most common tick you may encounter is the American Dog Tick, which does not carry Lyme disease. The only tick that carries Lyme disease in Ontario is the Blacklegged (or Deer) Tick (Ixodes scapularis). Both ticks can be found in wooded areas or tall grass habitats. In Ontario, Black-legged Ticks are more commonly found in rural areas along the north shores of Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, and the St. Lawrence River. Blacklegged Ticks are known to feed on migratory birds and as a result, they can be transported throughout the province. Therefore, while the potential is low, it is possible for people to encounter Blacklegged Ticks, or to be infected with Lyme disease from the bite of an infected Black-legged Tick, almost anywhere in the province.

These Black-legged Ticks (Ixodes scapularis) are found on a wide range of hosts including mammals, birds and reptiles. Black-legged Ticks (Ixodes scapularis) are known to transmit Lyme disease Borrelia burgdorferi, to humans and animals during feeding, when they insert their mouth parts into the skin of a host, and slowly take in the nutrient-rich host blood. Photo by: Jim Gathany, CDC

Ticks feed slowly, and an infected tick must feed on a person for at least 24 hours in order to infect them with the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. Because of this delay, prompt detection and removal of ticks is one of the key methods of preventing Lyme disease. If you become infected from a tick bite, symptoms usually begin within 1 - 2 weeks, but can take as long as one month to begin. The “classic” symptom is a bulls-eye rash that can develop anywhere on the body; however, this rash may not occur in all cases. Early symptoms of Lyme disease can include flu-like symptoms such as fever, headaches, stiff neck, jaw pain, and sore muscles. If untreated, problems with the heart, nervous system, and joints can occur months or years later. Lyme disease is easily treated in the early stages so seek medical attention if you feel unwell. When you are out in tick habitat you can better protect yourself by taking a few precautions: 1. Wear long sleeves and tuck your pants into your socks. 2. Wear light coloured clothing so you can detect ticks before they attach.

FALL Reactions to poison ivy can include a rash, swelling, blisters, and itching. These reactions can happen within ten minutes, or could take as long as a few days to develop. Most reactions will only last about five to twelve days, but an extreme reaction may last as long as one month! The best line of defense against poison ivy is to simply avoid the plant, but sometimes this can prove to be difficult. Every part of the plant contains urushiol oil, which is what causes the dreaded reaction. If you think you may have come into contact with poison ivy, make sure to remove contaminated clothing carefully to avoid spreading the oils. Then, as soon as possible, wash all exposed skin with dish soap to help remove the oil.

3. Use insect repellent containing “Deet” (please follow manufacturer’s directions). Apply it to your skin and outer clothing. 4. Conduct a tick check. Look on your clothes, body and pets. Pay close attention to your groin, scalp and armpits. 5. If you find a tick on your body, remove it and place it in a container. Contact your local health unit or your doctor if you have questions. Additionally, you may contact your family doctor for questions on Lyme disease. By following these simple suggestions you can have a safe and enjoyable time exploring Emily Provincial Park. For more information please consult the Public Health Agency of Canada’s website: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/lyme-disease.html You can also visit: www.ontario.ca/lyme

Found a Tick? DO

• Use fine point tweezers • Grasp the tick as close to your skin as possible • Gently pull the tick straight out • Disinfect the bite area with rubbing alcohol or soap and water • Save tick (alive if possible) in a jar, with a piece of damp paper towel for identification and potential testing. You can take the tick to your family doctor for testing. • Watch for symptoms and seek medical attention if you feel unwell or if you cannot safely remove the tick.

! o rs i t s i V ATTENTION

Don’t let harmful invasive species hitch a ride on you, your pet or your vehicle. Stop their spread. • Stay on designated roads and trails • Remove plants, insects and mud from boots, gear, pets and check vehicles before leaving the recreation area

Learn how to stop the invasion at ontario.ca/invasionON

DON’T

SPRING

• Grasp around bloated belly and squeeze the tick • Use a match, heat or chemicals to try and remove it • Twist the tick when pulling it out

Our Work Ontario Park’s mission is to protect significant natural and cultural resources and maintain

biodiversity in a system of provincial parks that is sustainable and provides opportunities for inspiration, enjoyment, and discovery; now and for future generations. We do this by creating recreational opportunities for our visitors while also managing the protection and ecological integrity of our land. Ontario Park staff take great pride in the work that we accomplish each year to achieve that balance.

iNaturalist iNaturalist

Know what kind of wildlife has been seen in your park. Share what you’ve seen with others. DownloaD the app to your mobile device or use your computer. More than 80,000 sightings in our parks Over 5,000 species

inaturalist.ca/projects/ontario-parks

iNaturalist Canada is run by the Canadian Wildlife Federation, the Royal Ontario Museum, and iNaturalist.org at the California Academy of Sciences.

As part of our dedication to science and research, Ontario Parks has adopted the use of a tool called iNaturalist to inventory and track sightings of different species, including endangered and invasive species. iNaturalist is available online or via a phone app. We encourage you to document what species you have seen while visiting our parks on iNaturalist/projects/Ontario-parks. Our staff have documented over 1000 observations at Emily, Mark S. Burnham, and Harris Island Provincial Parks. At Emily Provincial Park alone, we have made over 500 observations and have identified almost 300 species. We would like to challenge our visitors to help us reach out goal this year of reaching 2000 observations.

Invasive Species Management

Invasive species have now become an all too common thing to hear about in the news. Over recent years, we have heard of common invasive species such as Emerald Ash Borer, Asian Longhorn Beetle, or Zebra Muscles. Here at Emily we are taking steps to help return the land to its natural state by removing many of the common, but less talked about, species that plague the park. In recent years, we have partnered with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and managed to survey and document the entire park for invasive species. With the help of their Invasive Species Awareness Program, we have been able to host information sessions that help teach visitors how to identify these plants and animals as well as teach them how to reduce the spread of these invaders. With the combined effort of OFAH, Ontario Park staff and our park visitors, we have been able to remove over 100+ bags of dog strangling vine from the park. We have also utilized the help of local Stewardship Youth Ranger teams, to help tackle the spread of the common buckthorn at both Emily and Mark S. Burnham Provincial Parks. With the continued dedication we hope to eradicate common buckthorn from both locations to allow native species to thrive.

Pollinator Garden

With recent studies showing a dramatic decline in pollinators across the world, our staff wanted to do their part to create pollinator-friendly spaces within Emily Provincial Park. They identified an underutilized grassy area out front our main office and transformed it into a beautiful pollinator garden for local pollinators to thrive. In partnership with local nurseries, we were able to select native species that would provide much needed food, water and shelter to local pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and birds. Some of the plants that we chose to grow were Black Eyed Susan, Wild Geranium, Butterfly Milkweed, and Foxglove Beardtongue.

Thank you for Visiting Emily Provincial Park! The staff at Emily Provincial Park take great pride in their work and want to ensure that your stay with us was a positive and memorable vacation. Be sure to reach out to one of our staff members right away if you require assistance. This will allow us to address any issues you may have during your stay.

provincial park offices and on the e-Laws website at www.ontario.ca/laws. These laws are enforced by provincial park wardens who have all the power and authority of a member of the Ontario Provincial Police within a provincial park. Many of the listed offences could result in eviction from a provincial park. Evicted visitors are prohibited from re-entering any provincial park for a period of 72 hours. Minimum fines listed below do not include court costs or victim fine surcharge.

Explanation If you are 19 years of age or older, you are permitted to possess or consume liquor (beer, wine, spirits) only on a registered campsite. Drivers are responsible for ensuring that liquor is properly stored while in a vehicle. Liquor must be in a container that is unopened and the seal unbroken or is packed away and not accessible to any person in the vehicle. Many parks enforce a complete liquor ban on Victoria Day and for the preceding ten days. A liquor ban is also in effect at Sibbald Point Provincial Park on Labour Day and for the preceding four days. During these time frames, possession of liquor is prohibited everywhere within parks imposing the liquor ban. Provincial parks are established to provide a setting for peaceful and natural experiences. Rowdy behaviour, which includes excessive noise, obscene language or gestures, is not permitted. You cannot disturb any other person or interfere with their enjoyment of the park any time of the day or night. Operation of an audio device (such as a radio, stereo, TV, etc.) in a radio-free area is prohibited. Do not maintain or store potential wildlife attractants, including food or beverages, food preparation or storage equipment, cooking devices or utensils, garbage or recycling products, scented products or any other item in a manner that is likely to attract wildlife. Deposit all garbage and litter in the containers provided to discourage wildlife from becoming pests. Campsites and/or facilities must be kept clean at all times to eliminate potential hazards to parks visitors and minimize human-wildlife conflict.

Off-road vehicles are not permitted in provincial parks because of the environmental damage they cause. $ 125.00 Licenced motor vehicles may be operated on roads only. You must follow the rules of the $ 100.00 road and remember that the Highway Traffic Act applies on all park roads. Each vehicle in the $ 125.00 park must have a valid provincial park permit. Bicycles are only allowed on park roads and on $ 85.00 (plus 3 demerit points) designated bike trails.

All vehicles must park in a designated area and display a valid park permit. You must prominently display your valid park permit on your dashboard.

For the protection of wildlife and other park visitors, your pet must be under control and on a leash not exceeding 2 metres at all times. You must ensure your pet does not damage or interfere with vegetation or wildlife. You must also ensure your pet does not interfere with others’ enjoyment of the park. Pets are not permitted in the swimming area, on the beach or in a posted prohibited area at any time.

To maintain the park as a natural setting, the removal of natural objects is prohibited. All vegetation, wildlife and natural features are protected in provincial parks. Cutting any live growth or damaging any natural or other object is prohibited. You may not take any fallen or dead wood from a provincial park for the purpose of a campfire or other such intent. You are required to vacate and remove all property from your campground campsite or interior campsite by 2:00 p.m. on the date your permit expires so that others may have access to it. The maximum length of stay on a provincial park campground campsite is 23 consecutive nights and 16 consecutive nights on an interior campsite to ensure park visitors have an equal opportunity to enjoy our campsites and limit environmental impact. Without a limit on the amount of camping gear allowed, campsites would quickly deteriorate, becoming larger, eventually destroying the surrounding vegetation. The maximum number of campers allowed per campground campsite is six persons and the maximum number of campers allowed on an interior campsite is nine persons. Fireplaces are designated by park staff for safety reasons. Restricting fires to these locations greatly reduces the risk of forest fires. For the prevention of forest fires, a park superintendent may give notice of a fire hazard and implement a fire ban. At any time during a fire ban no person is permitted to have a fire unless otherwise stated by the park superintendent. Possession or use of fireworks is prohibited in provincial parks at all times. They constitute a fire hazard and disturb visitors and wildlife who wish to enjoy the park in a peaceful manner. Only registered campers are allowed in a provincial park during the posted hours of closing (10:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m.).

Fines are subject to change. This is not a complete listing of offences; please refer to the specific legislation.
