Effective immediately, the burn ban on lands in Skagit and Whatcom counties within North Cascades National Park Service Complex is lifted. This includes all National Park Service lands and campgrounds along State Route 20, the Ross Lake area, west of Rainy Pass, and north of Park Creek Pass and Cascade Pass.
The burn ban remains in effect for Lake Chelan National Recreation Area and the area of North Cascades National Park located in Chelan County, which includes campfires or the ignition of wood, briquettes, or any fuel in fire pits, fire pans, and barbeque grills. This comprises all National Park Service lands south and east of Cascade Pass, Park Creek Pass and Rainy Pass as well as the entire Stehekin Valley. Stoves or grills that are solely fueled by liquid petroleum fuels are allowed in all locations.
The burn ban lift compliments similar burn ban lifts in Skagit and Whatcom counties.
