We are definitely camping tomorrow night. Been wheeling there for a few years but never camped. What's the policy on camp fires? Will we be able to fire up the pit?

Campfires outside the pit are not permitted. It tears up the camping area and sometimes people have too many adult beverages, and well... you know...

There is a big fire pit (impossible to miss) where you are welcome to make a fire. Usually I make a small fire in the corner to cook some food on Friday. Saturday there are usually more people there, so we'll set the whole pit on fire and have a little bonfire party.

I'll be there Friday night, and have some dogs to cook, so see you there.
