The National Park Service has lifted the campfire ban for portions of Lake Chelan National Recreation Area and North Cascades National Park that was put in place September 21. Campfires are now permitted as usual in the middle and lower Stehekin Valley and the National Park Service-managed portion of Lake Chelan. This is in addition to the portions of Lake Chelan National Recreation Area, North Cascades National Park, and Ross Lake National Recreation Area that were not affected by the ban.
Campfires must be in established fire pits in both designated frontcountry campgrounds and designated backcountry campsites. Campfires are not permitted in other areas.
Please exercise great caution with all fire. Ensure that all campfires are out and cold to the touch before leaving the area. Do not burn toilet paper. Do not discard cigarettes.
