Because recent rains improved dry conditions across the state,
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), in
cooperation with the Florida Division of Forestry, has rescinded an
executive order issued last month that prohibited campfires in
wildlife management areas, wildlife and environmental areas and all
other lands it manages.
Campfires are again allowed in designated areas. For rules and
regulations pertaining to individual wildlife management areas,
please visit MyFWC.com/Hunting and click on "WMA brochures."
While the campfires are allowed, the FWC reminds everyone how
important it is to properly manage any campfire to ensure it is
under control and completely extinguished when done.
