Still Interested in Camping? Campfire Ban has been lifted!!

As  of noon yesterday the campfire ban that has been in place for the south coast of BC since June 27th been been officially lifted.

Just in time for Labour Day Long Weekend camping trips. Yes, campfires are once again permitted throughout the Coastal Fire Centre's jusidiction due to forecasted cooler weather and wetter conditions, resulting in a decrease in wildfire risks.

If you are planning on having a campfire, they can not be any larger than 1/2 metre high and you must make sure that you have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least 8 litres of water available to fully extinguish the fire.  Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure that the ashes are completely cool before leaving the area.

You are still not able to burn stubble or grass up to 0.2 hectares and light fireworks, sky lanterns  or burning barrels.

A map of where the restriction has been lifted is available on the BC Parks website.

Full details about the Campfire ban lift are available on the BC Wildfire Service Website.  Have a great long weekend!
