Rules & Regulations
We're a simple crew here at Peaks Valley Preserve, and our utmost priority is giving you the best experience possible while also protecting and respecting the wildlife around you.
The preserve offers a unique experience for watching wildlife. Animals at Peaks Valley Preserve are wild, and visitors have the amazing opportunity to view animals as they live and interact with each other in their natural homes.
But with that privilege comes responsibility. Visitors are responsible for their own safety and for the safety of the animals, too.
Here are some basic rules to make your trip a more enjoyable experience:
-Leave food, flavors, and scented items in the car and away from potential animals. Animals can and will seek out smells from miles away. Don’t be a victim to hungry cougars!
-Pick up all trash when you leave and take it with you. Pack it in, pack it out.
-Put out the campfire when you’re done using it. Do not leave an active fire pit unattended.
-Be considerate of water usage. Our water tank is communal and finite—this means others rely on the same water source you are using. Share with your fellow campers and don’t be a water hog.
-Do not feed the animals. Come one, come many.
-Remember to keep your distance when wildlife watching. No touching and no harassing.
