  • Trail Run: Online camp fire permits

    Just a reminder that if you are planning a trip to a forest that allows camp fires you will need a permit. Here is a link to get them online.
    http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/sequoia/pass...ire-index.html
    They are free. Take the short quiz and it will give you a link to the permit. Print it, sign it and carry it with you.
    Be safe out there.

    Thanks for that link. I am going backpacking and I forgot I would need one of these to run my camp stove.

    LOL my favorite question on the test:

    4)Extinguish campfire with water, using the _____________________ method.

    a)Drown, stir and feel
    b)Shake, rattle and roll
    c)Hit or miss
    d)Cut and run

          Cool, I didn't even know they had the link to it. I always stopped by the ranger station to pick one up.

          Thanks

            [COLOR="Sienna"] Kurt, does this include campground areas with fire rings? I've never had one before at a designated campground. [/COLOR]

              CAMPFIRE PERMIT PAGE

              You can help protect the National Forests from wildfires by knowing and following the rules for the safe use of fire. You must have a California Campfire Permit to use a stove, lantern, or campfire [COLOR="Red"]outside[/COLOR] a developed campground or recreation area. The permit is your agreement to follow the campfire restrictions and regulations in effect.

                From my Training outline for our "Rules" class:

                “You must obtain a California Campfire Permit if you plan to build a campfire in a yellow post site or use a stove, unless you are in a developed recreation area (campground or picnic area)( wood, charcoal and propane/gas stoves). Wood and charcoal fires are never permitted outside yellow post sites, picnic areas or campgrounds”

                I'll find the weblink once the website gets out of "molasses" mode

                  "Wood or charcoal fires are permitted only in developed campgrounds, picnic areas and Yellow Post sites on the San Bernardino National Forest"
                  Source: http://fs.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsinte...%20&%20Notices

                  Might be wise to check the current restrictions and condition of the forest you plan to visit.

                    Yep, same thing I posted - just worded differently.

                    Inportant to note that no open fires are permitted in dispersed camping in the SBNF anymore. "Open Fires" are catagorized as anything that produces ash (wood, charcoal, coal (I actually got asked about coal once)

                      Not permitted anymore as in never, ever again or anymore as in, until the fire danger is low????

                        Never, ever again. We (SBNF) were one of the last NF's that still allowed campfires in dispersed camping. USDA (Mom) put a lot of pressure on us to fix that (I think they threatned to withold our allowance)

                        Much as it inconvieniences people I know (were of course all RESPONSIBLE campfire users in DP), the other 99.9999999999999% of the folks were idiots when it came to fires

                          I've always considered YP sites as "dispersed camping"... guess I need to update my files!

                              Jeff,

                              The Serria National forest still allows camp fires outside of developed campgrounds. Here's an excerpt from their web page:

                              "Can I camp in areas outside developed campgrounds?
                              You may camp outside of developed campgrounds in most parts of the Forest, at no cost. Potable water, toilets, and other amenities are not generally available. If you choose to camp outside developed areas, be sure to bring adequate water or be prepared to purify spring water before drinking. Water on the Sequoia National Forest may be contaminated with Giardia or other microorganisms. Also be sure you have a Campfire permits if you plan to build a fire, (italics mine)and a Wilderness Permit if you plan to spend the night in the Wilderness. Wherever you camp, be sure to Leave No Trace."


                              Even when they have fire restrictions they still have areas designated as fire safe where fires are still allowed. It is a very user friendly forest.
