When you're camping out, your stay should be safe for both you and your environment.

Stay at least 100 feet from water so nothing from your campsite pollutes the water source, and do not drink directly from a stream or lake—filter or boil the water, or use tablets.

Before going to bed, double check that your fire is completely out and that you haven't left any food out in the open—nothing ruins a peaceful night under the stars like a visit from a bear!
