Drinking water
The park’s lakes and streams are sources of drinking water. Be aware of the damage caused by spilled fuel, waste water and sewage disposal. Bring your own drinking water as potable water is not available in the park. Lake water is available, however, please boil before using.
Visitors supply their own firewood. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil. You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use communal fire rings. Be prepared to bring a portable stove for cooking.
Pit or flush toilets

This park only has pit toilets, no flush toilets.

Eutsuk and Pondosy Lakes are great for boating and sightseeing. Please note:

  • Boaters should be wary of unmarked shoals and reefs [PDF]
  • Canoeing and kayaking are permitted in the park but boaters should use caution. 
  • Canoeists should remain near shore at all times as westerly winds can arise quite suddenly, especially in the afternoon. 
  • Pondosy Lake is entered by a short, narrow channel at high water. At low water in August and September, it may be necessary to line or pole boats through this waterway.
