Information about Camp Fires

Open fires are not permitted in the Eastern Zone of the High Peaks Wilderness Area.  In other areas, they are not recommended, but they are allowed without a permit in most of the Forest Preserve. We recommend using lightweight stoves and discourage open fires. Stoves are more dependable in inclement weather and cause less damage to the environment.
