SIERRA NATIONAL FOREST – Due to favorable weather conditions the Sierra National Forest has terminated Forest Order No 05-15-06, dated June 30, 2015 which eliminated campfires.
Visitors are now permitted to have campfires using wood and charcoal in all campgrounds in the Sierra National Forest. They will be permitted to have a campfire outside of designated campgrounds when they are in possession of a valid California campfire permit, which can be obtained at all National Forest offices.
Campfires continue to be permitted in the higher elevations of all wilderness areas. The Forest reminds visitors that to keep campfires small and away from dry grass areas because of the continuation of a fourth year of drought.
This Forest Order does not apply to State Responsibility Areas administered by Cal Fire. A burn ban is still in effect for those areas.
