Southern Region Campsite Program


For many people, an opportunity to camp is an important part of a quality hunting experience. To satisfy this request, Weyerhaeuser has developed a program that accommodates a wide range of camping preferences. Our program is founded upon three key principles: safety, aesthetics and compliance with all laws. Please read and follow all program guidelines to ensure that camping privileges remain available for your future enjoyment.

To designate a new campsite or to notify us of a pre-existing campsite that is not currently associated with your lease, please complete the request form and email it to your Lease Administrator. If you have any questions, please contact our Lease Support Team at 1-855-248-6872 for assistance.

Camping Options

We offer you 2 options to camp – "No Trace" and "Designated" as summarized below:

  No-Trace Camping Designated Camping
Requires Formal Registration? No Yes
Primary Requirements
  • No designated camp site
  • Remove all camping equipment from the lease at end of each hunting trip
  • A designated space is assigned and registered
  • Camping equipment may remain on site between hunting trips
  • Rental fees apply, depending on space requirements and duration of camper / structure stay (i.e. year-round)
Equipment Allowed Camper trailers, RV’s or tents Camper trailers, RV’s or tents
Annual Cost No Fees
  1. Campsite Fee - $200/acre, assessed in ¼ acre increments.
  2. Camper / Structure Fee - $200 for each camper that remains on site between June 1 and July 31.
Free items allowed at no additional cost A sign-in/out board & deer hanging rack A sign-in/out board, deer hanging rack, generator cover & Club Community Structure* (as defined below)
Important Note: Weyerhaeuser conducts routine campsite audits to ensure compliance with all guidelines. Failure to accurately report campsite information (location, acreage & # of year-round structures) will result in penalties double the normal fee amounts and potential loss of future camping privileges. Likewise, any materials left on-site after NO-TRACE camping, will result in a penalty of double the per acre campsite fee and potential loss of camping privileges.

*Club Community Structure – To provide hunters a covered meeting shelter for added camaraderie, each club may erect one (1) structure of no greater than 400 square feet in size. This structure may have a roof and not more than 3 fixed exterior sides (walls) over a bare soil floor surface (no wooden flooring or concrete slabs allowed). This structure may be used for off-season equipment storage, but the 4th side must remain open at all times (no tarps). This community structure is expected to serve the entire hunting club/camp; thus only 1 structure per approved campsite is allowed.

General Camping Guidelines

Follow these guidelines for ALL camp types, “No Trace” and “Designated”:

  • Camper trailers / structures must be maintained in a safe and sanitary manner to comply with all federal, state and local laws, ordinances, restrictions, and regulations, including any regulatory measures related to sewage discharge.
  • The campsite must be kept in an extremely neat condition. Debris must be removed at the end of each camping trip.
  • Service and maintenance of motorized vehicles, ATV’s or other equipment is NOT allowed on Weyerhaeuser land.
  • Campfires are normally permitted, but are subject to ban during hazardous conditions that prevent safe use. Contain all campfires within a fire ring and fully extinguish all embers before leaving the campsite.
  • Locate your camp away from the view of public roads, as this will greatly reduce the likelihood of any vandalism.
  • Once the “out of view” requirement is met, establish your camp as close to public access as possible. Locating a camp deep into your lease can negatively impact hunting, and it may not be readily accessible during wet-weather events without causing damage to woods roads. Remember, all “Designated Campsites” require advance approval from Weyerhaeuser before setup and use.

“No Trace” Campsite Guidelines.

In addition to general guidelines, “No Trace” campers should follow these rules:

  • Overnight camping is allowed using camping trailers, RV’s or tents.
  • “No Trace” campers can set up a sign-in / sign-out board and deer hanging rack that remain on site year round. All
    other camping materials must leave the site at the end of each hunting trip.
  • “No Trace” campers may NOT erect a Club Community Structure or any other fixed structure of any kind.
  • Camps should be located a safe distance away from any active logging or silviculture operation and away from the
    primary vehicular routes that serve these operations.

Designated Campsite Guidelines

In addition to general guidelines, these rules apply to all “Designated” camps:

  • Clubs who want to designate a NEW campsite must first submit the attached CAMPSITE REQUEST FORM. Clubs must receive explicit written approval from Weyerhaeuser before any new site is established. Once approved, youdo NOT need to resubmit this form each year to continue camping.
  • Campers/RVs may be left on site from August 1- May 31 for no charge. A $200 fee will be assessed for each camper RV or fixed structure that remains during the period June 1 thru July 31. The $200 fee does not apply to a satisfactoryClub Community Structure.
  • Except for 1 Club Community Structure, construction of any new buildings or permanent structures (to include cabins, sleeping structures, porches, decks, concrete slabs, trailer / RV canopy and storage buildings) is NOT allowed. Explicit approval from Weyerhaeuser is required before adding any new Club Community Structure to a campsite.
  • All vehicles (including camping trailers and RV’s) must display current registration (tag) and exist in good running condition at all times.
  • Shipping containers, construction trailers, school buses, mobile homes and panel vans are not allowed on Weyerhaeuser land at any time.
  • Water service (drilling wells or connecting to public water utilities) is NOT permitted. We strongly recommend that clubs use portable generators to satisfy electricity needs. Any connection to an electrical utility service requires explicit, advance approval from Weyerhaeuser; requests that require a right-of-way (ROW) grant will NOT be considered.
  • Weyerhaeuser may elect to cut and remove trees inside the designated campsite area at its sole discretion; in this
    event, the Lessee will be asked to move mobile structures to facilitate the harvest operation.
  • All campsites are subject to routine inspection and audit by Weyerhaeuser. Removal of any / all structures
    and camping equipment will be required immediately if, in Weyerhaeuser’s sole opinion, these items become
    dilapidated, represent a safety risk, are an eye sore or are found to be out of compliance with zoning codes. 

REQUEST FORM FOR DESIGNATED CAMPING

Clubs requesting a Designated Campsite must report their campsite location by providing GPS latitude/longitude coordinates AND by making a copy of your lease map and marking the campsite location with an X.
