Over the busy Fourth of July the Forest Service is asking everyone to help prevent wildfires by being extra careful with campfires, stoves and other ignition sources. Fire restrictions are in place to protect the health and safety of employees and communities. Outside of developed campgrounds and certain other permitted areas, igniting, building, maintaining or using a fire on national forests in California is prohibited.
Campfires are allowed at developed campgrounds and day use sites. With a valid Campfire Permit visitors may also have a campfire in these areas:
within 10 feet of Shasta Lake, Trinity Lake, and Iron Canyon Reservoir, provided that the area is at
least 50 feet from any vegetation.
within the Yolla Bolly-Middle Eel, Chanchelulla and Castle Crags Wilderness Areas.
within the Trinity Alps Wilderness Area, except within the Canyon Creek and Stuart Fork Watershed
Prohibition Area or the Alpine Lake Watershed Prohibition Area.
