This would have been in the common sense section, but unfortunately the VAST MAJORTY of campers retire for the night without properly extinguishing their campfires. It is almost natural to want to snuggle into the tent and fall asleep to the soft crackle and warm glow of the fire dancing on the tent walls. It is also almost natural to forget that all it takes is one spark in the dry woods to start a fire that could cause serious burns, injury, or death to you, your loved ones, your neighbors, or their children. In the best case scenario where no one gets hurt, a major fire at a campground not only ruins the weekend, but also the vacation plans of every camper who was booked for the rest of the summer. For the owners, it means a lifetime of regretting not being more on top of the rules. It means years of blood and sweat and sacrifice in exchange for financial ruin. It means that it will take 50 years before the campground looks the same again. Please keep all of this in mind, and avoid hostile comments, if we have to wake you so that you can put out your fire.
As per provincial regulations, please help stop the spread of harmful insects and disease by not transporting out-of-province firewood.
