Use of portable stoves and lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel, or use of a fully enclosed sheepherder type stove with a spark arrester screen is permitted.

Fire Restriction Order 07/31/2016

Current Fire Danger is Very High: VERY HIGH Fires start very easily and spread at a very fast rate. Fires start easily from all causes, spread rapidly and intensify quickly. Spot fires are a constant danger. Fires burning in heavy fuels may quickly develop high-intensity characteristics, such as long-distance spotting and fire whirlwinds. Direct attack at the head of such fires is rarely possible after they have been burning more than a few minutes.

**Fireworks are not allowed on any Public Lands**

CAMPGROUNDS and RENTAL CABINS

The opening of the campgrounds and rental cabins across the Bridger-Teton can be delayed due to weather conditions. Due to the unpredictable nature of the weather, visitors may encounter delayed openings or early closings at the beginning or end of the season. You can check with the Forest if you are making early season or late fall travel plans for the latest information. Cabin rentals can only be done through the www.recreation.gov portal. 

Note: There are no reservations taken for any of our campgrounds, they are all on a "first come, first served" basis.

FALL COLORS

Annually, the Bridger-Teton provides fall color information that visitors can see throughout the area. Colors change annually on the Bridger-Teton from the first of September through the first of November.

FIREWORKS:

The Bridger-Teton National Forest reminds visitors that fireworks are not permitted anywhere on the Forest by a Special Order signed by the Regional Forester.
