Custer, SD – Independence Day is just a couple of days away and Forest officials want to remind visitors and campers that fireworks are prohibited on the Black Hills National Forest and within the Black Hills Fire Protection District.

“Possessing, discharging or using any kind of fireworks or pyrotechnic devices is prohibited on the Black Hills National Forest year-round,” said Scott Jacobson, Public Affairs Officer for the Black Hills National Forest.

As a reminder, campfires are permitted in established metal fire rings or grills that are in designated sites within a developed campground, recreation area or picnic ground.
