Campfires
The smoke from campfires pollutes our
environment; limit your use of campfires to cooking
and warmth. Use only fallen logs or purchase wood
from the campground, and observe local burning
regulations. Do not leave a campfire unattended.
Please do not move firewood from one location to
another as it can spread pests and disease.

Columbia, call the BC Forest Service toll-free at
