Shenandoah National Park Temporarily Lifts Fire Restrictions
Recent rainfall and cooler temperatures will allow for fire restrictions to be temporarily lifted in Shenandoah National Park effective immediately.
These restrictions were put into place to provide for public safety and protect park resources by reducing the number of unwanted fire starts. These restrictions will be put into effect should dry weather conditions resume, increasing fire danger.Open air wood, charcoal, coal or solid fuel fires are only permitted in park established fire grates and rings. Backcountry campfires are not permitted except at pre-constructed fireplaces at backcountry huts and day-use shelters. The use of self-contained, gas-burning camp stoves and lanterns are permitted in both developed campgrounds and the backcountry.
