CAMP STOVES AND GRILLS Enclosed propane grills are acceptable in the camping areas but NO open flame or charcoal grills will be allowed. Please use extreme caution and be responsible. Always make sure your stove is in an area that is clear of dry grass and brush, and never leave a stove unattended while it is burning. If you are using a camp stove, make sure you bring along a fire extinguisher and have it properly placed where everyone can access it. CAMPFIRES Unfortunately due to the sensitivity of the land and the severity of flying embers we can not allow open fires anywhere at the festival, except in the existing fire pits. Never leave a fire unattended. Leaving a fire unattended at best, will result in losing fire privileges for your camp. WASTE REDUCTION, RECYCLING & COMPOST (TRASH) Pack it in and pack it out.
