Area Management

The Cache Creek Wilderness is part of the 110 million acre National Wilderness Preservation System. This System of lands provides clean air, water, and habitat critical for rare and endangered plants and animals. In wilderness, you can enjoy challenging recreational activities like hiking, backpacking, climbing, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, horse packing, bird watching, stargazing, and extraordinary opportunities for solitude. You play an important role in helping to "secure for the American people of present and future generations the benefits of an enduring resource of wilderness" as called for by the Congress of the United States through the Wilderness Act of 1964. Please follow the requirements outlined below and use Leave No Trace techniques when visiting the Cache Creek Wilderness to ensure protection of this unique area.

Allowable travel within the Cache Creek Wilderness is restricted to foot or horse. There are no fees or permits required for entry into the wilderness. Because there are no developed campgrounds, users are requested to practice low-impact camping techniques. Fire permits are required for open campfires during the non-fire season. During declared fire season when restrictions are in effect, open campfires are prohibited, however the use of propane or white gas stoves are allowed with a fire permit. Fire permits are available free of charge at any BLM or Cal Fire office. All campfires are required to be located sufficiently distant from water sources and vegetation so as to allow appropriate use without unacceptable degradation.

Know where you are at all times. Short-cutting through adjacent private property is prohibited. Removal of any natural features including live vegetation, rocks and minerals, and paleontological or cultural resources is prohibited.
