Gas fire is also not allowed. They said if you have it on a table you might get away with it. If you’re running a stove or grill you must have fire permit.

Campsite Info:

These remote camping sites offer locations for tent and car camping. There are some mature shade trees near the sites, but other than a metal fire ring for campfires, these sites do NOT contain the amenities found at developed campgrounds. There is no water, no picnic tables, no restrooms nearby, and no trash containers. Please pack it in – pack it out!
