AMENDED POLICY FOR CAMPFIRES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

DO NOT LIGHT YOUR FIRE BEFORE READING THIS AND HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING. 

NOTHING BEATS SITTING AROUND A CAMPFIRE AT THE END OF A “HARD DAY” OF CATCHING UP WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS. TOASTING MARSHMALLOWS WITH YOUR KIDS, BEING AN AGE OLD TRADITION THAT HAS BEEN PASSED ON BY GENERATIONS.

BEING ONE OF THE FEW PARKS THAT STILL ALLOW CAMPFIRES ALL YEAR ROUND, WE REQUIRE THOSE THAT LIGHT THEIR CAMPFIRE TO HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR OBLIGATIONS WHEN THEY DO SO.

WE HAVE A SAFETY FIRST ATTITUDE TOWARDS FIRES AND INSIST THAT OUR GUESTS DO TO. AFTER ALL, WE WANT EVERYONE TO GO HOME IN THE SAME CONDITION THEY ARRIVED.
