Kampinoski Park Narodowy - Trip Planning

Whilst I'm on my winter "break" I'm going to take the opportunity to get over to the Kampinoski National Park to the North West of Warsaw. Some English information is available on wikipedia.
I don't plan on doing much woodcrafting there - you need permits for fires and rules are usually quite restrictive. However, there's always the chance to pick up some raw materials for various projects.
I'm pretty excited about going as there are beavers and moose in the park, neither of which have ever been in any areas I've been to before.
I've got my map and compass sorted so that should be ok and I'm checking a few emergency back ups - spare knife (Bark River PSK), space blanket, matches, fire steel and tinder.
