Yosemite Fire Danger Very High – Campfires and Cigarettes Banned

In Fire, News

Visitors coming to Yosemite National Park over the next several weeks should be aware that maintaining, attending, or building a fire below 6,000 feet in elevation, other than in one of the park’s designated campgrounds, is prohibited at this time. Visitors who smoke cigarettes in the park are urged to be cautious with their discarded cigarette butts and only place them in the appropriate trash receptacle. Additionally, smoking is only allowed in designated areas, inside a vehicle, or at campgrounds where fires are allowed.

Fire restrictions for Yosemite National Park went into effect Tuesday, July 15, 2014. The fire order restricts the use of campfires in wilderness below 6,000 feet in elevation. However, campfires in designated campgrounds and picnic areas will still be allowed.
