When going into an area to camp or hike check in with local authorities such as the Sheriffs office or Park Ranger. It is a good idea to let them know where you plan on camping, how long you plan on staying and how many people are in your party. Let them know what day you expect to leave the area. After you have completed your stay, check back in with them so they know that you are safe and on your way home.
