Fire California

NEW: Online Campfire Permits (PDF)

California suffers numerous wildfires every year. Please don't be the cause of one. Campfire permits are issued at no charge to insure fire restrictions are followed correctly. These Southern California regions are very strict on their permits. Please contact the forest directly for regulations.

This permit is good for stoves, fuel lanterns or campfires. Visit a ranger station; show your drivers license to a ranger & they can issue you a permit after you have reviewed the precautions & fire safety laws. Campfire permit is valid from the date issued until the end of the calendar year. It may be used in any National Forest in Northern California or in the Sierra Nevada. See fire safety page.

CampFire CaliforniaFire Restrictions

Fire restrictions change throughout the year depending on fire hazard. When no stage restrictions are in effect, you may use a stove, lantern, or campfire in accordance with the regulations listed on your permit. Fire hazard is determined by the fuel moisture content in an area (the amount of moisture present in the surrounding trees and brush) and by local weather patterns, which include the temperature, the prevailing winds, and the relative humidity.

Sometimes a wilderness permit serves as your fire permit. Other Wilderness area regulations may require you to have both a fire permit and a wilderness permit. In wilderness areas where no Wilderness permit is requied, you must always have a campfire permit to use a backpack stove or build a fire.
