- Campfires are still not allowed.
- BBQs and anything that uses gas with a shutoff valve is allowed with fire permit. (No charcoal, wood fires, or smudge pots)
- Click here to get your fire permit for free. (This is not something that is heavily enforced, but technically its the law. Its best to get one just in case.)
With all of the recent fires happening right now in California, the BLM has been forced to issue a temporary ban on all campfires. If the fires get under control and the ban gets lifted, we will update this post. Until then, this means NO FIRES are even allowed at Dumont. We understand there is little that can even burn out there, but this is a CA statewide ban and Dumont is in CA and on BLM managed land. Hopefully the fires get under control and this does not affect dune season, but as of right now this is still in effect for Dumont.
The shortened version...
- Setting, building, maintaining, attending, or using open fire of any kind is prohibited,
- Controlled flame devices such as portable stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves,using gas, jellied petroleum, or pressurized liquid fuel are allowed and require a valid California Campfire Permit, and
- Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or camp trailer or while stopped or standing in a three-foot diameter area barren or cleared of all flammable materials and away from federal facility doors, windows and air ducts.
