Wildfire Prevention

  • Campfires are only permitted in established fire rings in designated wilderness campsites, government provided grills, or self-contained grills or stoves in designated picnic areas and campgrounds. (No government-provided grills are present at Douglas Springs and Grass Shack campgrounds; fires are prohibited at these locations.) No other fires are allowed in either district.
  • Dead wood on the ground may only be collected for use as fuel for campfires within the park in the following areas: within ½ mile of Manning Camp, Spud Rock, Juniper Basin and Happy Valley wilderness campgrounds.
  • Fires must never be left unattended and must be completely extinguished upon departure.If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot to leave! Stir, drown, and repeat until cold.
  • If you smoke, please practice Leave No Trace principles by packing out cigarette butts.
  • Use and possession of fireworks if prohibited year-round.
