Wasagaming Campground Fire Permit

Purpose of Fire Permit:

The purpose of the fire permit is to prevent visitors from bringing firewood from outside the park as this increases the risk of spreading disease and invasive species.

Firewood will go from being sold for $8.00/bundle to $8.00/day which will save money for visitors who would typically purchase more than one bundle per day. This will also help decrease the need for visitors to bring their own wood.

Is the fire permit for all of RMNP?

The fire permit is for the Wasagaming Campground only.

Fire Permit Process:

  • Permits are required for visitors having fires at their campsite.
  • There is a daily $8.00 fee per campsite.
  • Campers having campfires during their stay will pay for the full cost up-front (example: a stay for two nights will be charged $16.00 upon check-in). This is to make the process more efficient than processing fees everyday and avoid long lineups.
  • Campers will not be reimbursed for days they do not burn wood or for rained-out days.
  • Campers will be able to collect firewood for the day from our Woodyard during open business hours (08:00-22:00).

Will Parks Canada staff be monitoring campsites and checking for permits?

  • Campers that have paid their fire permit for the day will have a red stamp on their camping permit.
  • During regular compliance rounds - staff will check for firewood on campsites and see that they have a stamped permit.

Campfire regulations:

  • All registered campers having a campfire must have a valid daily fire permit.
  • Campers must be registered in the Wasagaming Campground to purchase a daily permit.
  • Fires must be contained within the fire pit provided. No homemade fire pits are allowed to be used.
  • It is illegal to collect brush/ foliage/ deadfall or to cut down trees within RMNP.
  • No outside firewood is allowed to be brought into Riding Mountain National Park.
  • Fires must be extinguished between 01:00-07:00.
  • Fires must not be left unattended.
  • Unused firewood must be left at the campsite upon departure.
  • No refunds for fire permits.
