Category 1 Campfire

Per the Coastal Fire Centre criteria, a campfire is defined as:

  • Any fire no larger than 0.5 metres high by 0.5 metres wide (a fire larger than this is considered a Category 2 fire).

  • Used by any person for recreational purposes or by a First Nation for a ceremonial purpose.

  • Campfires should be less than one-half metre high

  • Responsible campfire use follows the British Columbia Campfire Regulations.

Avoid having a campfire when it's windy, choose a proper fire pit or make a ring of rocks at least three metres from trees, shrubs, structures and debris, and do not leave a campfire unattended for ANY amount of time.
