- Recreational campfires are allowed year-round when no restrictions are in place.
- A campfire must be constructed in an area free of flammable materials; check for overhanging branches.
- Do not allow your campfire to spread beyond the established ring, pit, grate or container.
- A shovel, or other fire tools, and a sufficient amount of water to extinguish the fire must be on site.
- Never leave a campfire unattended, and make sure it is DEAD OUT before vacating the site.
