Pay attention to any warnings you might receive from an Ontario Parks representative upon entering the park. They may advise of fire bans, animal sightings, boil water advisories or of interesting programs or services happening during your stay. This will be very important information to have when making decisions about how to prepare and store your food.
If refrigeration isn’t an option, pack accordingly, pack perishables in a cooler or freeze ahead of time to extend their useful life. If you do bring meat or dairy products, consider eating them within the first day or two of your trip.
Keep the fuel canister for your stove in a pack separate from your food, to avoid any possible contamination.
Always make sure to secure your knives. As packing space is often limited on a camping trip, make sure your knives are packed in a small case, or consider purchasing a camping knife that comes in a protective case.
