It is fine to:
- Bring along your dog, but it should be on a leash.
- Build a fire in designated places.
- Pull up canoes and kayaks on shore as long as they are not positioned so that they block swimming beaches.
- Pitch a tent for a maximum of two consecutive days in the same place. In South Koster and North Koster, pitching a tent is not allowed, except in campsite on North Koster. During the July 1-August 15 period, tents are not allowed between 10:00 and 18:00 on Tenholmarna, Burholmen, Bockholmen and Store Bror.
