Fires ( 02:24:16 ThuFeb 28 2008 )

I know fire is a serious subject in California, so I want to make sure I am absolutely certain about when it is ok and not ok to have any kind of fires. Obviously during dry times in mid and late summer, no open fires are allowed, but are burn barrels allowed all year? When are open fires usually prohibited? I only ask because fire would be (if permissible) my main source of cooking and late night entertainment. Who doesn't love a campfire while camping? Safety for the forest is, of course, my main concern here.

Thank you very much.

When the threat level gets high enough, no fire means just exactly that. Not even chain saws and ATVs running in the woods. Smoking only in an enclosed vehicle.

Get ready for a cold camp.

check at the forest rangers office and get a fire permit and all the regs. They can cancel them if the fire season gets to bad.

Thank you for all the help. I will be certain to take extra care with fires and refrain from making a fire when the dry season arrives.

Burn barrels are not allowed at all in this area(even though some people still use them).

I would plan on pressured gas for cooking during summer months unless you are in an established campground where you can still use campfires.

Rich,
Thanks for the Forrest Service link! That is SO much more conveinient than driving out of my way and then running the risk of no-one there or having some enviro-punk refusing to issue me a fire permit...(Yeah, that happened to me)...Tom
