The Fire Is Out

Every year the King Range goes into fire restrictions for multiple reasons. As the weather heats up, the grasses begin to dry out and this creates a bad mix for fires. During the annual meeting, the BLM and CalFire agree when to go into fire restrictions and the date is JULY 1ST.

The restrictions apply everywhere within the King Range National Conservation Area. Backpackers should pick up a stamped backcountry permit that reads “Campfires currently prohibited”. This does not include your camp stove or fire rings in BLM campgrounds (car camping sites).

Remember, you can still have a fun time even without a campfire.
