Sounds simple doesn’t it. Campfires. It’s a little more involved though when you are visiting a National or State Park. For most of the parks you climb in, campfires are only allowed in the official metal fireplaces. Most of these are in formal campgrounds. More info will fill this page over time. It’s an issue that isn’t going to go away any time soon. Please check campfire restrictions wherever you go. Lighting a fire near the rock to keep yourself warm ain’t cool.
