Tips for Enjoying the Outdoors Safely During Fire Season

  • Campfires are permitted only in picnic areas where fire grates or fireplaces are provided. Fires must never be left unattended and must be completely extinguished upon departure. If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot to leave! Stir, drown, and repeat until cold.
  • If you smoke, please practice Leave No Trace principles by packing out cigarette butts.
  • Use and possession of fireworks is prohibited year-round.
