Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What is platform camping like?
A: Platform camping is primitive camping in an isolated setting - and an excellent way to enjoy the many habitats of the Roanoke. You'll be surrounded by nature, so bring your camera or your sketchpad! You will bring everything you need in your canoe or kayak, so pack light. Roanoke River Partners asks that campers adhere to a strict "pack it in, pack it out" policy. Click on the "Leave No Trace" logo on our home page for more details. This policy includes carrying your camping toilet and carrying ALL wastes back to land for proper disposal. (Tip: Porta-Potties--or even a 5-gallon plastic bucket--can be lined with heavy duty plastic bags containing a small amount of kitty litter to absorb liquid wastes and help with odor control.) Be sure not to leave any food wastes, as well, since food can cause problem with, and for, wildlife. Please... leave no trace of your visit when you break up camp.
