Campfire Building; Dutch Oven Cooking

September 3, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm

This is a NWS Wilderness Days Event

Build your own fire starters! Tom and Maureen Flatley (NWS board member) have been Boundary Waters Wilderness camping for decades.  Come learn their tested techniques to make your own fool-proof fire starters, easily getting a campfire started, even in the rain!  We will have supplies to share for making your own to use next time you travel into the wilderness.  Kid friendly activity!

Stick around and gather around the firepit to learn from Chris and Cindy Treml and their Master Dutch Oven Cooking Demo. The Tremls’ have done Boy Scout demonstrations at EAA for years, baking breads, biscuits, jambalaya; you name it. This is their first time traveling to Newport State Park to share their expertise. Expect tasty samples at the end of this demo!

Park in Lot 3 and walk down to the picnic shelter building.

All programs are free, but a state park admission sticker is required on all vehicles.
Some programs are weather related, so check with the park if you have any questions.
