    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.

    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

    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????

    "Wood or charcoal fires are permitted only in developed campgrounds, picnic areas and Yellow Post sites on the San Bernardino National Forest"

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

    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
