Welcome to the Camping information page for the lac Pemichangan Watershed. For several years, the FLP Board of Directors have been looking for ways to preserve and improve this beautiful and wild area of the world. We want everyone to be able to experience it and to spend time canoeing and camping in the area is a perfect way to do that.
The FLP Board of Directors is committed to:
- Exploring and restoring canoe routes
- Mapping routes on line as a resource
- Cleaning campsites
- Encouraging low-impact camping practices
To enable that, we are publishing an online resource to help plan your next outing on the lake!
- We have published a Campsites and Lunch Spots map that shows the the camping spots, and the lunch spots in the watershed.
- If you have any questions please contact us.
Below you will find a list of Camping Etiquette tips that will help your group to minimize your ecological impact while out on the lake:
- Travel and camp in small groups
- Plan your route
- Refrain from using marking paint or flagging tape. Navigate using a map and compass instead
- Camp only on designated sites.
- Pack it in, pack it out! This includes all trash, leftover food, and litter
- If an outdoor privy is not available, deposit solid human waste in small holes dug 15 to 20 cm deep at least 70 m from water, campsites, and trails. Replace soil immediately
- To wash yourself or dishes, carry water 70 m from streams or lakes, and use small amounts of biodegradable soap. Dispose of grey water in a pit, not in the water; biodegradable soap requires soil to effectively break down
- Anglers should dispose of fish remains in fast-moving current or in deep water. Do not leave remains out in open areas or on shore
- Be cautious of the spread of invasive species; clean your gear and outerwear often
- Do not build structures/furniture, or dig trenches
- Check for active fire bans before you start your trip. Where fires are permitted, use established fire rings, fire pans, or mound fires
- Keep fires small. Only use sticks from the ground that can be broken by hand
- Ensure all coals are burned down to a fine ash, and fire is fully extinguished (ashes should be cool to the touch).
