Current Fire Restrictions: Stage 2 - Very High
Fire managers may institute fire restrictions any time that fire danger and general conditions call for them. The goal of the restrictions is to reduce the possibility of accidental human-caused fire that could threaten visitors and employees during times of high fire danger. To minimize a surprise when you get to the parks, check this information right before you travel and ask in a visitor center when you arrive.
Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 fire restrictions are implemented due to fire danger. Additional fire restrictions for backpackers are in place for wilderness travel to reduce impacts on fragile alpine ecosystems.
National Forest areas surround much of these national parks, and many park visitors also visit and camp in the national forest. If you plan to camp on national forest lands surrounding these parks, check Sequoia National Forest fire restrictions.
