Fire Restrictions to be Implemented in Zion National Park
Contact: David Eaker, 435-772-7811
As a result of the high fire danger in Zion National Park and the surrounding area, restrictions are being instituted prohibiting campfires and charcoal fires in Watchman and South Campgrounds and smoking on trails. These restrictions will be in effect starting at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 and will be enforced until rescinded by the Superintendent. Park officials feel that the risk to public safety and structures within Zion National Park from a human-caused fire is great enough that these restrictions are necessary.
Violation of the above, prohibited acts is punishable by a fine of not more than $5,000 and/or imprisonment for not more than twelve months, or both.
