We reserve the right to prohibit fires even when the danger may be deemed moderate, but winds are high.  Please use good judgement when starting a fire in the fire pit.  No unattended fires! When you are done enjoying your campfire - please use multiple buckets of water to make sure your fire is completely out.  If we see mis-use of fire pits, we will prohibit your use of the fire pit during the remainder of your stay.

Fires start easily from all causes and , immediately after ignition, spread rapidly and increase quickly in intensity. Spot fires are a constant danger. Fires burning in light fuels may quickly develop high intensity characteristics such as long-distance spotting and fire whirlwinds when they burn into heavier fuels.

Fires can start from most accidental causes, but with the exception of lightning fires in some areas, the number of starts is generally low. Fires in open cured grasslands will burn briskly and spread rapidly on windy days. Timber fires spread slowly to moderately fast. The average fire is of moderate intensity although heavy concentrations of fuel, especially draped fuel, may burn hot. Short- distance spotting may occur, but is not persistent. Fires are not likely to become serious and control is relatively easy. PLEASE CHECK THIS PAGE BEFORE STARTING ANY FIRE.  CONDITIONS CAN CHANGE MULTIPLE TIMES DURING THE DAY DUE TO CHANGING FIRE/WEATHER CONDITIONS.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN PREVENTING AN OUT OF CONTROL FIRE.
