Fire Restrictions Go Into Effect On The Eldorado National Forest Saturday

Fire restrictions go into effect on the Eldorado National Forest beginning Saturday, July 14. Wood and charcoal fires will be restricted to designated recreation sites and other fire related activities will be prohibited until the end of fire season. Gas or propane fires are allowed with a free 2018 California campfire permit.  While always cautious about imposing restrictions on visitors, conditions in the forest and in California have reached a point that restricting campfires to campgrounds is appropriate.  Also on Saturday, the Stanislaus National Forest will begin fire restrictions in the Moore Creek area along the North Fork of the Mokelumne River which is accessed through the Eldorado National Forest. Complete details regarding the 2018 fire restrictions, including the list of designated recreation sites, is available on the Eldorado National Forest website at:   fs.usda.gov/eldorado.
