In accordance with the 36 CFR §1.5(a)(1), Superintendent Dan Foster has established a restriction for campfires on the exposed lakebed.

Campfires in park-provided fire grates at developed campgrounds are allowed.The use of gas and propane barbeques and self-contained stoves is allowed in the recreation area.

Campfires are never allowed on the beach area above the exposed lakebed.

The threat of wildfires from escaped outdoor burning is highest during the hot and dry days of summer.Wildfires are serious threats to public safety, adjoining private property, and wildlife habitat.
