Propane fire rings

Does anyone have any knowledge whether or not propane fire rings can be used out west during fire restrictions. I'm assuming wood burning campfires will be restricted in many areas but I am not finding any current info on this subject. We are planning a cross country trip and wondering if we take the propane fire ring, will we get much use out of it. TIA

I've been carrying and using a propane fire (L'il Red Campfire) for several years now. It's been my experience that anywhere a propane stove or barbecue is permitted the propane campfire is also permitted. Wood and charcoal fires can produce embers that travel on the wind and start wildfires - propane fires do not produce embers. There have been a few places that ban all fires, including propane, but places like that are rare - and kind of scary TBH if things are that dry.

We live in Oregon. So far, propane fire pits are still allowed.

AZ yes. Coconino and Kaibab lifted all fire restrictions.

Generally, yes they are OK.

I'm hearing that in some RV parks wood fires and propane fires are being discouraged due to Climate Change.

Here an old list, but you will need to do your own research.
