Alerts and Advisories as of: June 1, 2023

Fire Bans

There is a fire ban Many of our provincial parks across the province have imposed a partial or full fire ban due to the lack of rainfall, hot weather conditions and high to extreme fire hazard ratings in many of the municipalities surrounding our parks. Ontario Parks works closely with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s (MNRF) Aviation Forest Fire and Emergency Services (AFFES) and local municipalities when implementing a fire ban.

Bonnechere Provincial Park is implementing a Full fire ban as of 12:01AM June 1, 2023. A Full fire ban restriction prohibits all open fires within the park at any time.

During a full fire ban park visitors are permitted to use:
Portable gas or propane stoves, with a shut off control valve, manufactured for the intended purpose of cooking (i.e., portable camp stoves, single burner units, portable barbeque, etc.), for food preparation only.

Park visitors are not permitted to use:
Charcoal barbeques or biomass units using natural burning fuels (i.e., sticks, twigs, pinecones, etc.).
Portable outdoor living gas or propane fire pits or fire bowls manufactured for the intended purpose of outdoor ambiance and recreational enjoyment that produces flame.
