Fire Restrictions – Montezuma Castle & Tuzigoot National Monuments

 Effective Tuesday, 22 April 2014, the National Park Service at Montezuma Castle and Tuzigoot National Monuments will implement fire restrictions, comparable to those currently in effect within Yavapai County. 

 Superintendent Dorothy FireCloud will increase existing fire protection measures within Monument lands by restricting smoking, specifically:

 - Smoking will only be permitted in vehicles. 

 The use of liquid fuel stoves is still permissible at the designated picnic area at Montezuma Well. 

 Monument lands are always closed to the building, maintaining, attending or use of a fire, campfire, charcoal, coal or stove fires. Additionally, the possession and use of fireworks are always prohibited at the Monuments.

For questions or additional information, call 928-567-3322.
