KING SALMON, Alaska - Recent precipitation has moderated fire danger enough that Katmai National Park and Preserve, Alagnak Wild River, and Aniakchak National Monument and Preserve have lifted burn restrictions.
While campfires are allowed in the park, visitors should minimize impact using existing campfire rings or building their campfires on beaches or gravel bars where water and ice will wash evidence away. Always ensure fires are cold to the touch before leaving them. Fireworks are never allowed in national parks.
Conditions can change rapidly, so wildland fire managers ask visitors and residents to stay informed of fire danger and conditions. We all have a hand in a safe fire season.
