Campfires

Campfires

While campfires are allowed, we encourage visitors to conserve wood and protect the environment by minimizing the use of fire and using campstoves instead. Firewood is not available in the park, so you must bring your own. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented. To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park (this is a ticketable offence under the Park Act). Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.
