Restrictions vary depending on specific location, but campfires are almost always allowed in permanent firepits in developed camping and picnicking areas. More fire restrictions will likely be put into place as the season progresses, however. (Check utahfireinfo.gov for a list of active statewide fire restrictions.) When building a campfire, keep it small and always have the proper extinguishing tools on hand, like a large bucket of water and a shovel. And be sure to practice the proper technique for extinguishing a campfire before going to sleep or leaving: Drown with water, stir and repeat until the coals are cool to the touch. Never build a campfire in high winds.
