FIREWOOD POLICY

Santa Margarita sells seasoned oak and pine firewood at competitive prices.  Currently, guests may bring their own firewood to the campground; but there is a rumor that that may change in the near future.  We have firestarters, roasting forks and all the makings for S'mores in our store.  Each site comes with a fire ring on the ground with a grate over half of the grill for cooking.  Some sites have a stand-up grill for charcoal, which we also sell. 
  • Do not move the fire ring. 
  • Keep flames below 3 feet.
  • Fire must be attended at all times.
  • Please douse fire with water before checkout.
  • Do not put ashes in dumpster.
  • ALL FIRES MUST BE OUT BY MIDNIGHT
