Park Rules + Safety Tips

  • Plan Your Trip - Stay on the marked routes. Bring a buddy while exploring at your own risk. Check out the Possum Park Map Here

  • Litter - Please recycle appropriate litter and deposit trash in dumpsters. Leaving no trace of your visit helps the park remain beautiful and reduces the possibility of human/animal conflicts.

  • Pets - Protect pets and wildlife by keeping pets on leashes, no longer than 6 feet, at all times. 

  • Safe driving - Protect all park users and wildlife by obeying speed limits. No passengers under 18 are permitted in truck beds.

  • Wildlife - Keep wildlife wild. Do not feed or harass wildlife.

  • Hammocks Check with park staff to ask about site-specific rules or requirements. No permanent anchors such as screws or eyebolts may be used. Hammocks may not be attached to park structures such as shade shelters, lantern posts or buildings unless specifically authorized.

  • Tent camping Please camp only on designated camp pads or sites to protect fragile plants and minimize soil compaction.

  • Alcoholic Beverages and Food - BYOB is permitted. No outside food.
