Can I have a camp fire?

No ground fires are permitted in the Blue Lakes area of the Mt. Sneffels Wilderness; use camp stoves to cook. Minimize use and impact of fires in other areas; exercice extreme caution in putting a fire out (drown-stir- drown, etc.). On occasion, fire danger is so great that fires are not permitted. Be aware of Forest Service signs banning fires. If there is any doubt or question, contact the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests' Fire Information Line at 970-874-6602 for up-to-date information on wildfire conditions and fire restrictions on the National Forest.
