Non-motorized Recreation Access

Frequently Asked Questions about Non-motorized Recreation Access

 

What can I do while on the property?

You are welcome to walk, run, hike, ride a bicycle, horse or mule, walk the dog, photograph wildlife, hunt, fish, picnic, pick berries, etc. on existing roads and trails.  You may not target shoot and you may not build new trails. You may not ride in a vehicle with a motorized recreation access permit holder. 

 

Why are there individual and family permits?

In an effort to keep permit costs down, we are offering a permit for individuals who may want to hike, bicycle or horseback ride on the property as well as a family permit that is for married spouses and their children less than age 19.

 

What can I expect when I purchase a permit?

You will receive an email that will serve as your receipt and permit for access.  You MUST print out two copies.  Carry one copy with you while on the property and the other copy is to put on the dash of your vehicle if you are parking near the property.  Be prepared to show your permit and photo ID when you are asked by law enforcement, security or Campbell Global personnel.

   

Do non-motorized users need to fill out a sign-in card?

No!  Sign-in cards are for motorized users only and are at the motorized access gates.  Non-motorized users can access the property from any location provided they are not crossing other private property without permission.  We do ask that if non-motorized users harvest game, they mail in a game harvest card or put it in the box at a kiosk at one of the recreation access gates.  Game harvest cards are available at the recreation kiosks or may be printed from the website.

 

How long is the permit valid?

Annual permits are valid from the date of purchase, after April 1st, through the following March 30th.  Permit holders will need a new permit starting April 1st of each year.
