Campfires now banned in Washington State Parks

Washington State Parks announced that campfires in all state parks are prohibited until further notice to help prevent human-caused wildfires.

Campers will be allowed to use propane and liquid gas stoves while camping, as well as citronella or other candles in a metal bucket or glass container.

Washington State Parks is following the lead of the Department of Natural Resources who announced this week of a ban on all outdoor burning on DNR protected land, which includes approximately 50 percent of the state parks.

The State Parks ban on open fires and campfires in all state parks is intended to minimize public confusion and cooperate in DNR’s effort to prevent wildfires.
