We know it really doesn’t feel right camping without a fire, so how exactly do you follow the laws and still have a great time, when campfires are restricted? Great news! Usually, unless conditions warrant otherwise, the use of portable stoves or portable campfire apparatuses (that follow a few simple rules) are allowed during fire restrictions! This way, you can still get that authentic campfire experience, without compromising the forest around you.

Unfortunately, many commercially available propane campfires are NOT CSA or ULC approved, and are not fully adjustable (so you can’t reduce the flame height to comply with the law). So it’s really important to do your homework when purchasing a portable propane campfire and ask LOTS of direct questions – otherwise you could very well be camping without a fire!
A very helpful resource to help you find the perfect portable propane campfire is Campfire Compare! This site has 11 of the top brands and looks at 10 features that you should consider when purchasing (such as the CSA/ULC approval), and is a great place to start doing your homework.
