Campfire Permits Available Online
As the weather warms up it’s getting close to time for trips to the Sierra Nevada’s to go camping. One of the most important things to take with you when you go camping in the forest is a Campfire Permit. While permits may not be required in established campsites, it is always a good idea to have one so you know the rules of open flames in the forest. Besides, you never know if your favorite campsite will be full and you need to resort to dispersed camping.
To make it easier to educate folks and allow us an easy method to obtain campfire permits the California Wildland Fire Coordinating group (CWCG) PreventWildfireCA.org website has an online resourse to obtain a Campfire Permit.
At http://www.preventwildfireca.org/Permits/ you will watch a 2-1/2 minute video, take a short test and be able to download and print a valid Campfire Permit.
