Campfire burn ban lifted for western Washington state parks

OLYMPIA — The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission announced last week that the ban on campfires in Western Washington state parks has been eased as of this morning.

Washington State Parks wants the public to know that park managers have the discretion to restrict campfires in these campgrounds, based on their assessment of conditions, which may change quickly. Campfires are allowed in approved fire pits only. Park managers may also require smaller fires than are normally acceptable.

The public is encouraged to check the individual parks’ web pages for any exceptions regarding campfire restrictions. Visit www.parks.wa.gov and click on the “Parks” link for a list of all parks. Any campfire restrictions will be listed under the “Alert Center” section of the web page.
