  • Campfire Restrictions

    Effective Wednesday August 8, the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is restricting open campfires throughout the forest; except in designated developed campgrounds.  Wood and charcoal fires are only allowed in developed campgrounds and group campgrounds that have established concrete or steel-grated fire pits or rings. Building and tending open campfires, including charcoal briquettes, cooking fires and warming fires are prohibited. Permissible sources for cooking or heat include portable stoves or lanterns using gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel. Smoking is allowed within enclosed vehicles, buildings and developed recreation sites.  Even where campfires are permitted, the fire and any source of flame, should be totally extinguished and cool to the touch before leaving the campsite.
