Currently, there are no active wildfires within the park. The Maple Fire is burning in the neighboring Hamma Hamma area of Olympic National Forest. Smoke may be evident in areas of the park due to some major fires burning elsewhere.
UPDATE (August 2018):
Please be advised that our area is entering into a critical fire weather pattern with very hot, dry, and unstable conditions. These conditions promote active fire behavior with rapid rates of spread and high resistance to control. A fire ban has been issued for all backcountry areas, including the coast.
Campground sites and Picnic areas provide for a safe and enjoyable campfire experience if you follow a few basic guidelines.
Make fires only in designated fire areas and keep the fire size small with flames less than 2 feet high.
Attend your fire at all times.
Extinguish your fire before you leave.To put a fire out, apply water and stir the coals to ensure water penetrates all fuels. The fire should be cold when feeling with the back of your hand.
With your cooperation, campfires can continue to be allowed for your enjoyment. Thank You.
