A forest-wide fire restriction has been issued for the Chattahoochee National Forest from October 12 - December 31, 2016.
Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire or campfire outside of developed recreation areas is prohibited. Fires must be confined to receptacles designed for fire -- which are metal fire rings in developed campsites.
The potential for wildfire activity is very high across all of North Georgia where severe to exceptional drought conditions are being experienced.
Commercially available fuel stoves (camp stoves) are excluded from this restriction.
