Can I have a Campfire?

By Joss Penny

Yes as most campgrounds have fire rings at each site. The smoke from campfires pollutes our environment so we ask that you please limit your use of campfires to cooking and warmth. Where possible use firewood purchased from the campground and always observe local burning regulations. Never leave a campfire unattended. Please do not move firewood from one location to another as it can spread pests and disease.  Occasionally campfire bans are implemented in extreme dry weather conditions. For information visit, Please note that CSA approved propane firepits for warmth and cooking devices can be used during a campfire ban unless specifically prohibited. However the flame should be six inchs or less.
