Campfire Permits

Obtaining a Campfire Permit

Campfire Permits must be obtained directly through the CAL FIRE web page and campfires are only allowed in a properly screened wood-burning outdoor fireplace or chiminea approved by Meeks Bay Fire.

  • No burning is allowed on Red Flag Warning Days.
  • You will be required to watch an introductory video prior to completing the application. 
  • Once you have completed your application you will be required to print the permit. The permit will not be valid if it is not printed and signed.
  • Renters must have written and signed authorization from the property owner in their possession in order to obtain a permit and have a fire. You must keep your permit on you at all times during a campfire. 
  • You are required to follow all Fire Season Restrictions.
  • There must be a responsible adult in attendance with a shovel until the fire is dead out.
  • There must be a water supply.
  • No campfires shall be undertaken unless weather conditions (particularly wind) are such that burning can be considered safe.
  • In case of emergency, call 911.
