On Oregon’s ocean shore, fires must:

•   Use natural, untreated wood.

•   Be 3 feet by 3 feet’ or smaller, unless you have a permit from the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.

•   Be drowned out with water — not buried — when finished.

New signs are going up at entry points to the Oregon ocean shore to remind visitors of these common sense rules.

Some areas of the southern Oregon coast are under fire restrictions and beach fires are currently banned. Check the park you plan to visit at oregonstateparks.org to check on restrictions before you travel.”
