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..

ROAD CONDITIONS-updated July 11, 2014

Keeping some roads closed beyond the scheduled opening dates substantially reduces maintenance and limits early season damage to many roads as we prepare for summer season. If you have any questions, contact the District of the area you are visiting to get the latest updates or check periodically on this webpage for more updates.

**Please Note: If the Road or Campground is not located below, it means it has opened and you can find information in the recreation page pertinent to its district**

Name  Road # Status
Cottonwood Rd (Upper Gros Ventre Corridor) #30410 CLOSED
Little Granite Creek Road #30505 CLOSED 1/2 up the road

RIVER REPORT June 2014:

As visitors are getting ready to enjoy their water activities, please be aware that due to high waters the river might be flowing faster and more aggressively than usual. It is advised that kids and pets do not go near these fast-moving waters. We recommend you do not recreate by yourself as well as to let people know about your location and when your expected time of return will be. If you have any question please call the offices of your desired river adventure.
