Big Bend National Park – Following rains this past week, Big Bend National Park’s fire danger has been reduced to Moderate, prompting park managers to remove restrictions that had been in place to protect park visitors and park resources during the past months of extreme fire danger.

Juniper Flats, Boulder Meadows, and Pinnacles backpacking sites are now open for camping. The park additionally has removed the temporary ban on charcoal fires and smoking in the Chisos Campground.

The park would like to remind visitors that while fire danger has been reduced, visitors to the park should still take care to prevent human caused wildfires. The park’s regulations prohibiting ground fires, wood fires, and smoking on trails in the Chisos Mountains are still in place.
