Occasionally due to extreme fire hazards, the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport will issue restrictions on open fires in provincial parks and recreation sites.

During Fire Restrictions or Bans: All wood burning fires in the park are prohibited. CSA approved self-contained portable gas heating devices and fire pits, barbecues, pressurized stoves and charcoal briquettes will be permitted for cooking and heating purposes at park discretion. These measures will remain in place until conditions improve and the fire restrictions have been lifted.

Support fire suppression efforts. If you see a fire, report it by calling Park Watch toll-free at 1 800 667-1788. In an emergency, call 911.

Fire restrictions are currently active in the following locations: 

  • Rec Sites
    • Denare Beach Recreation Sites including:
      • Sawmill Bay Campground
      • Sand Beach Campground
      • Tyrrell Lake Campground
      • Leaf Rapids Campground
      • Granite Lake Campground
