The changing leaves of Autumn, the natural wildfire of brilliant orange and flaming red, this is what we wait for all year round and it’s finally here! Our Tentrr campsites have some of the best lookouts for the most spectacular views in the Catskills. These magical views have been enjoyed for generations before us and it’s up to all of us to keep them magical for generations to come. Every step into nature has an impact and it’s up to us to keep that impact as minimal as possible. Nature is and always has been there for us, now it's our turn to be there for nature.
Take only photographs, leave only footprints
Everybody here at Tentrr strives to keep todays world the same for generations to come and the only way we can do this is if everyone works together. Here are a few tips on how to leave no trace!
Plan ahead -
Message your CampKeeper with any questions you might have from the quickest route to get to camp to where to dispose of your trash upon departure.
Keep the camping on the campsite -
Hike around until your heart's content. The Catskills has amazing hiking and great walking trails. Then, at the end of the day, head back to camp.
Watch your waste -
We all make waste, that’s a given but make sure you are putting all garbage in the garbage can and that you’re only using biodegradable soap
Leave what you find -
Admire the nature, reconnect with the nature, get in touch with your roots but then leave it there for the next camper to admire.
The campfire leaves an impact -
Make sure you keep all fire inside of the fire pit and anything that you put into the fire pit, try and burn it down to ashes before you put the fire completely out
Respect the wildlife -
Don’t feed the bears or other wildlife, secure your food in sealed containers when you’re done with it or keep it in the car. Be sure to keep an eye on your pup as well!
Just as you depend on the environment to relax and rejuvenate you, the environment truly depends on us to keep it in good condition. Being knowledgable about the outdoors and the different ways you can positively impact it can be the difference between a good camping trip and a great camping trip.
These tips are important to keep in mind whether you're camping at one of our Tentrr campsites or hiking Mt. Everest!
Now that you're ready, plan your Tentrr adventure today!
