How High-Quality Signs Make Our Lives Easier and Safer

You may not even realize how much you rely on the information that signs provide until you can’t find one. If you’re like us, at some point in your life, you’ve looked around and thought “where’s the sign?”. Road or traffic signs may be the first types that spring to mind, but there are many more.

Parks, Campgrounds, and Hiking

Parks continue to be a hot destination for vacations, weekend getaways, and day trips. Visiting a park is an inexpensive activity that keeps people moving around and out in nature. But imagine going to a state park or campground and seeing no signs. That would not only be a confusing trip, but a dangerous one too.

At Dornbos Sign and Safety we make  Park, Campground and Trail Signs that conform to the state and national park color scheme. Our signs are made of the highest quality, rust-free aluminum, and 3M reflective sheeting just like our highway signs. This makes them exceptionally durable in all kinds of weather. In parks and campgrounds, there is basic information each visitor needs to know to keep them safe.

No matter how long someone is staying in a campground or park, they should be aware of typical animals in the area and what the acceptable level of interaction is. We’re able to manufacture whatever sign you may need or suggest some like:

  • Do not feed
  • No hunting
  • Beware of...
  • Ice fishing
  • Fishing pier
  • Horse trail
  • Fish cleaning area
  • Fishing area
  • Fish hatchery
  • No fishing

  • Basic Safety Information

    No matter where someone is in a park or campground, they need to be able to clearly see where certain areas are for safety reasons. We make signs that are easily seen during the day or night because of the high-quality 3M reflective sheeting we use. We can make any safety sign in the classic brown and white color scheme. We recommend:

  • Ranger station
  • Information
  • First aid
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Trail shelter
  • Hospital
  • Basic safety also includes the classic “No” sign featuring a circle with a line through the middle. These are critical because there are areas in parks and campgrounds where certain activities are allowed that may not be allowed nearby. Clearly defining where those areas are keeps everyone safe and happy.


    People want to be active and know where they can see or participate in certain activities. Highlighting these amenities on a park map isn’t enough. A clearly marked sign that will withstand heat and weather will ensure people know where they are. These signs include;

  • Picnic area
  • Restrooms
  • Recycling
  • Parking
  • Campfire
  • Handicap accessibility
  • Trash can
  • Electric site
  • Marina

  • Water Sports

    When water is involved, it’s very important people know where it’s safe to enjoy certain activities. It can be dangerous to mix  boatingswimming, and fishing without everyone knowing where they’re supposed to be. Talk to us about what you’re looking for and we can make a recommendation for your situation.

    Having the right number of signs can make your visitor’s experience safer and more enjoyable. This means high quality signs that will withstand weather and last a long time. Choose from our large selection of park, hiking and campground signs, all of which fit this bill.
