Grand Canyon, AZ- Effective immediately stage 2 fire restrictions are rescinded for the entire Grand Canyon National Park. Increased monsoonal activity throughout northern Arizona has significantly lowered the fire danger risk within the last week. Visitors and residents are now allowed to use charcoal grills and have campfires. 

Grand Canyon National Park remains in stage 1 fire restrictions year-round which requires that a campfire always be in a designated fire ring within a maintained campground. Inner canyon users can use gas cook stoves, but campfires and other open fires are never allowed below the rim. Colorado river users should continue to follow the conditions of their permit regarding fire regulations along the river. 

Grand Canyon National Park entered stage 2 fire restrictions on May 25, 2020.
