Mesa Verde National Park has lifted fire restrictions which have been in effect since July 16, 2016. Rain showers and cooler temperatures in recent weeks have reduced the fire danger in the park. There are no active fires in the park.

Effective immediately, open fires or charcoal fires are no longer prohibited in Morefield Campground, Chapin Mesa Picnic Area or park residences. Smoking is permitted in designated areas. Fireworks are prohibited in Mesa Verde National Park.

If the fire danger increases later in the season, restrictions may once again be implemented.
