Campfires guidelines are put in place for guest safety and to avoid forest fires on the island. Please read the following to ensure everyone has a safe and fun experience:



These rules will be strictly enforced for everyone’s safety

Campfires are enjoyable and relaxing! They are also fun for cooking or making smores. However, fires of any kind increase risk to other guests and the island. Any misuse of fire bowls or misuse of campfires will be met with a warning first followed by immediate removal from the The Retreat. Beaver Island Retreat Management reserves the right to extinguish fires at anytime.

Using the firebowl:

  • Fire bowls are to be used on the gravel provided and not relocated
  • Firewood and starter should always be contained within the bowl when lit to avoid the fire escaping from the contained area
  • Do not use broken tree limbs or debris in fire bowls
  • Do not burn trash, cans, or paper in fire bowls

Large fires that exceed the bowl rim in excess of 10” will be extinguished

Children 16 and under:

  • Children are not permitted to be left alone with a campfire
  • Children are not permitted to start or maintain a campfire
  • Parents are responsible for ensuring their children remain a safe distance from the fire bowl/ campfire to avoid injury

Extinguishing a campfire:

  • Campfires must be extinguished prior to turning in or leaving the site
  • Campfires can be extinguished by burning down, using sand from your site, or water from the facility
  • The fire extinguisher provided at each site is in case of emergency and not to be used to extinguish the fire

We love your furry family member and are so glad that you’ve brought them along! In order for your camping experience to be positive for all guests at the Retreat, please note the following:

  • Well-behaved pets are free to run on the campground as long as they do not interfere with other guests or pets
  • We provide water/food bowls, pet mat, and doggie baggies for their business, all of which are all replenished as needed
  • Pets are permitted in tents and expected to sleep inside the tent with the family on the pet bed that we provide with your stay. This is for their safety.
  • Pets are never to be left unattended on the campground and should travel with their owners during excursions on the island
  • Pets are not to be left unattended inside the tent as the material and screens could rip due to the force of your pet attempting to get out
  • Pets that have altercations with other pets or campers will be required to be leashed for the remainder of their stay
  • Pets must be leashed within the town limits of St. James

Please note:

We suggest that your pet be leashed during the night if they leave the tent for business. This is to protect your pet from running off to that interesting sound in the woods or sustaining potential injury by other animals on the island.
