Campfires

The last couple of years with increased wild fires have made planning your summer camping trips very challenging. We have some tips and suggestions for to help make your summer camping more enjoyable.

Check for Campfire Bans

For most of the interior of British Columbia, fire bans are coming on earlier and staying on longer. Always check the BC Government website for the current status of all fire bans and restrictions. For the status of campfires check the Category 1 column. Link to: BC Government Fire Bans and Restrictions Home Page.   Tukaluk Campground is in the Kamloops Fire Centre.  It is important to note that even though the Kamloops Fire Centre may not have a restrictions there still could be local conditions that have required local jurisdictions to restrict campfires.   

Allowed Activities and Devices During a Campfire Ban

In general some activities and devices are permitted when a campfire ban is in place and some are not. Please check with the above link to the BC Government Fire Bans and Restrictions Home Page above for full details.

Often, campfire bans still allow the use of CSA-rated or ULC-rated cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or of portable campfire apparatus that use briquettes, liquid fuel or gaseous fuel, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15 cm tall.
