Campfire Ban Partially Lifted At Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area

Fire frame


As of Oct. 1, 2015, campfires are allowed in established fire rings in campgrounds and day-use areas throughout Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. Charcoal grills are also allowed; however, other forms of open flame, such as tiki torches and lakebed campfires, are still banned.

Regulations require your campfire to be less than three feet in diameter within the established fire ring. Fires must be attended at all times and completely extinguished with water before you go to bed or leave your campsite.

It is also illegal to burn chemically treated wood, painted wood, wood with staples as well as household garbage including plastic and cans.
