Leave no trace principals, sometimes shortened to LNT, is a must whether you are car camping or heading far into the backcountry. It can be summed up simply into a single saying – Take only pictures, leave only footprints – but the principals go much deeper than this. The following guide can help you better understand and implement the seven leave no trace camping principals to ensure an ecologically sound trip.
Principal 1: Plan ahead
Planning and preparation is key to eco-friendly camping. Before heading out, make sure you know what areas are open to camping, whether and where campfires are allowed, and if you need to package food to protect wildlife. It’s also a good idea to plan campouts so that only small groups attend since this will have less impact on a wilderness area. If you opt to RV camp, try finding an RV friendly town to choose a route with regular dump points so you can empty your holding tanks properly when needed.
