Campfires at Sandpoint?

Just wondering if campfires are allowed at Sandpoint? I understand Cape Alava allows them but with driftwood only. Does this same rule apply at Sandpoint? Thanks!

I think you can bring your own firewood to Cape Alava (if you really wanted to) but they don't want you scavenging wood out of the forest. Given National Park Rangers I don't think I would want to have to prove the source of my wood, though.

Looks like no fires at Sand Point.

From: nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/ozette-loop.htm

•Campfires are prohibited between the headland north of Yellow Banks and the headland at Wedding Rocks. This includes Sand Point.

•Do not gather fire wood from the forested areas. Use driftwood only! There is little or no driftwood at Cape Alava during the summer season. Build fires on the beach to prevent damage to tree roots.
