All campfires and barbeques are limited to designated fire rings in designated campgrounds. Portable stoves with gas, jellied petroleum or pressured liquid fuel are authorized with a valid California campfire permit, but the public is asked to be extremely careful with their use and carry a shovel and water at all times.
Other restrictions include:
• Do not operate tools powered by internal combustion engines off established roads or trails.
• No smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, or at a designated developed recreation site, or other designated areas.
• No motorized vehicles off established roads or trails.
• No shooting using incendiary, tracer, steel core or armor piercing ammunition.
• No fireworks, including "safe and sane" fireworks.
The Mother Lode Field Office manages approximately 230,000 acres of public land in 14 Central California counties. Most of the acreage is within the historic Mother Lode region of the Sierra Nevada Range, from Yuba County (in the north), to Mariposa County (in the south).
