Campfires

Fire pits are now available to hire at Lorne Foreshore Caravan Park.

There is nothing better than a camping trip with a good old fashioned camp fire.
After a day of exploring you can enjoy sitting around the fire with family or friends with your cup of tea or beer and wine, and toasting marshmallows like we did as kids.

Should you wish to hire a fire pit, please contact reception prior to your trip to guarantee availability. Alternatively try your luck on arrival.

Campfires are restricted to Erskine Park only, restricted to off peaks times and to the use of the supplied fire drums only.

As we are based in a natural bush setting, please be sensible with the use of the fire drum.

Please read the below regulations before lighting your campfire:

  • We will deliver the fire drum and a bag of firewood to your site for a fee. Please discuss with our friendly reception staff.
  • You can’t bring your own firewood, it must be purchased from the park.
  • When it is time to depart, you simply leave your drum and we collect & dispose of the ashes.
  • Campfires are allowed from April – November (Excl peak dates), except on total fire ban days declared by the CFA. We will notify our guests when total fire ban has been declared. At management’s discretion, some days will be declared as a “no campfire day” due to severe weather warnings or special events.
  • Firewood must be contained within the fire drum. No long/large wood to be hanging out of the drum. Flames must be no more than 50cm above the height of the drum.
