Currently there are noÂ fire-related restrictions or closures in place. Campfires are only allowed in designatedÂ firerings in 11 developedÂ campgroundsÂ and most backcountry campsites. Park officials are asking visitors to extinguish campfires and make sure they are cold to the touch after use. Fireworks are not allowed in the park on on other federal lands.
