Campfire with Smokey The Bear
Assateague State Park
There’s nothing quite like enjoying the great outdoors with a roaring fire, gooey s’mores and a night sky full of stars. But that wonderful campfire is also a big responsibility. Smokey needs your help preventing wildfires so more families like yours can enjoy this experience in beautiful parks, forests, other wildlands, and even your backyard, for years to come. That’s why it’s important to learn how to be safe with your campfire.
