  • Fire Restrictions Lifted

    Lassen National Forest officials will lift fire restrictions forest-wide, effective Friday, October 5, 2018.

    Forest visitors may once again have campfires outside of developed campgrounds and recreation sites, although California Campfire permits are still required. The free permit may be obtained online at http://www.preventwildfireca.org/Campfire-Permit/ or from Forest Service offices during regular business hours (Monday-Friday 8 a.m - 4:30 p.m.). Visitors are reminded to keep campfires small and ensure they are completely extinguished and cold to the touch before leaving.

    It remains the responsibility of woodcutters to obtain the "woodcutting status" by calling (530) 257-9553 each day before heading out to cut wood.  The recorded message will be updated to notify you of the daily regulations.

    Read the news release for more information and who to contact.
