Level I Fire Restrictions effective January 19, 2018

Under the reduced fire restrictions, campfires and charcoal barbeques will be allowed in all areas of Los Padres National Forest. A California Campfire Permit, available free of charge, is required to build a campfire outside of a designated Campfire Use Site. A list of Campfire Use Sites and information about how to acquire a campfire permit is available at www.fs.usda.gov/lpnf

Visitors who construct wood or charcoal fires outside of designated Campfire Use Sites also must abide by the following rules:

  • Clear all flammable material for a minimum of five feet in all directions;
  • Have a shovel available for preparing and extinguishing the fire;
  • Have a responsible person in attendance at all times;
  • Extinguish the fire with water, using the “drown, stir and feel” method.
