A fire ban that was put in place April 19 is still in effect for Strathcona County. No burning is allowed.

A fire ban remains in effect for Strathcona County as of May 20, 2016, until further notice.
Despite the recent rain, conditions remain very dry. Multiple days of rainy and cooler weather are required to have a significant impact on the overall conditions.
There are 53 fire bans currently in effect in Alberta. That may change as the effect of the current rain is assessed.
The situation today:

At least 5 inches of rain here. That's good!! For sure makes me happy! We sure needed it.
Good thing most campers have wheels: can travel wherever they want

Is there firewood for sale at the campground? Doubt one can bring their own from the US.

There's definitely firewood available in Osoyoos but I don't remember rings at the campsites, at least ours last year. Don't even bother trying to learn all the firewood rules, just don't haul any and buy locally. I get wood with a tag of origin if at all possible. Some rangers get kinda chippy on this. Wood chippy that is. That's my theory these days, especially coming from the Emerald Ash Borer Midwest.

No fire rings at the campsite in Osoyoos.

Mosquitoes are out but not a plenty, at least where I am. I remember last year there were mosquitoes up on the top spots.

Just got a 25 ft 12V extension cord so we can run our fan on top of the campsite table to keep the skeeters at bay.

No fire rings is one less item to deal with!

Don't even think about bringing even a twig across the border into the US. Yikes! And don't ask.
