A fire ban has been declared for all of Algonquin Park (As of July 18, 12:01am). Please keep in mind it is illegal to have open fires while in Algonquin Park's backcountry. If you are foolish enough to ignore the ban and are caught criminal charges as well as fines can be levied.
If illegal use of a campfire results in a forest fire, be prepared to mortgage your house in this and your next lifetime to cover the cost of putting out a forest fire! Be smart, be safe. Use only your stove for cooking. For the official regulations and details pertaining to a fire ban you can click here to go to the the FOAP web site.
