Permittees will be issued a current map of Camp Ripley showing areas of Camp Ripley that are closed to hunting. A person may not enter any closed area, except for the road from the southeast railroad gate through the checkpoint to the open hunting area. A zoning system may be used to regulate access into various portions of the open areas of Camp Ripley.
Permittees must register at the department checkpoint prior to hunting each day.
Permittees will be allowed beyond the department checkpoint only from one hour before sunrise to 1-1/2 hours after sunset on each day open for hunting, or as otherwise authorized by the commissioner.

Persons or vehicles, while on any road or trail, may not pass beyond any barrier, gate, or warning sign.
All-terrain vehicles are not permitted in Camp Ripley during the Camp Ripley archery hunt, except as authorized by permit for hunters with disabilities. All vehicles are restricted to operating only on designated roads, except as authorized by permit.
Vehicles in line at the checkpoint must be occupied. Permittees must stay with their vehicles.
Only portable stands or blinds may be used and must be removed each day at the close of hunting hours and do no permanent damage.
Deer may not be removed from Camp Ripley or transported beyond the department checkpoint until registered at the checkpoint.
The commissioner may close the season without prior notice, if necessary to accommodate military training priorities or in case of weather emergency.
