Backcountry Fires Allowed?
November 24, 2018 09:06AM
Hi - I read somewhere that backcountry fires are not allowed in the park in Winter. Anyone know the accuracy of this?

Thanks,

Lowell

Campfires are often impractical: Fires are only allowed in existing fire rings, which are typically buried under several feet of snow, with no way to locate them.
Use a portable stove for any cooking. Open fires should be used for emergencies only.
