Low Impact Camping: Please note that fire boxes are now required for open fires in NNP-R. A fire box is a collapsible metal box with a grate on top that all fits into a compact case. A fire in this little invention is superior for cooking and requires a fraction of the wood. In environmental terms, a fire box used on sand of stones prevents a fire scar from being formed. The draft created by the box will burn your wood to a fine ash that can then be diluted in the river.
