Default Camping and campfire within the state

Anyone know of some nice camping spots where I can have a campfire (as most of state seems to be under fire-ban).
Planning on going this w/e but may head WY way

Thanks

Lal, as far as I know any of the US Park campgrounds with fire rings would still allow fires. I was at Olive Ridge last weekend near Allenspark and they were selling firewood and everything.

You guys are freaking me out. There is a no open fire ban - period - in Jeffco, Clear Creek, and Park Counties (and more). Can't even weld outside. Fire ring or not. AFAIK, the Hayman fire started in a fire ring.

We are primed for an historic fire season, I truly hope it doesn't come to fruition. Some kids across the street were setting off firecrackers yesterday. Parents at work... a neighbor gave them some education.

[edit] here, this may help:

Oh, and FYI, Wyoming is also struggling with some serious wildfires.

Dont forget Utah and New Mexico. Last I herd, NM was twice the size of Haymen. And the lady that started the Haymen got her life sentance dropped down to 6 years. Still makes me.

  • Tiki torches, small recreational fires at developed picnic or campground sites contained in permanent fire pits or fire grates with flame lengths not in excess of four feet and which are supervised by a responsible person at least 21 years of age.
If that weren't the case, you'd think the camp hosts, county Sheriff, and Forest Ranger who all patrolled the camp within hours of each other would have said something.

Camping is just sleeping in the woods without a fire. however, the national park does allow them in the rings and they WILL FINE you an easy $300 if you dont FULLY put it out... had a friend eat $300 for some smoldering ashes.

Options: A pile of glow sticks. One of those Halloween lights with the blowing way fabric. Yule Log on your laptop. Coleman lantern on the ground.

My Quasi legal Favorite: Citronella candle metal bucket with small piece of paper towel making a mega wick.

Yeah, we're all just twitchy up here. Most people looking to have a campfire want one in an undeveloped, private location like the "good old days".

Coleman lantern, friends, and fine barley pop still work fine...
