San Bernardino National Forest laws are in effect on all roads and trails within the camp and the surrounding forest. These laws include:
- NO SMOKING except in posted areas

There is absolutely no smoking or open flames allowed in any buildings in the camp, or on the grounds or surrounding forest except in designated outside areas.
fire pit only
Campfires are allowed only in the designated fire pit. Arrangements to have campfires or fires in the fireplaces must be made in advance with the Camp Manager. These rules are rigorously enforced.
Fire tools and water must be available at each fire location before fires are lit. The Camp Manager will inspect after use.

Report any fires or smoke immediately to the Camp Manager and/or the Forestry Department. The camp cell phone number is (909) 485-0005. Call 911 if needed.
