State Park Fire Restrictions
The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management implements three stages of fire restrictions on state lands: Stage 1, Stage 2, and closures.
So what's the difference?
Stage 1 is the first phase of the restrictions. Under these lower-level restrictions, campfires are allowed, but they must be within a developed site. See the QuickTabs below for more detailed Stage 1 restriction information.
If weather conditions worsen and fire danger increases, the agency will move into the next stage of restrictions. Under Stage 2, even stronger stipulations are put in place, including no more campfires.
And, if conditions continue to decline and extremely high fire danger becomes a threat to the public and our firefighters, closures will go into effect. Within a closure, no public access will be allowed on state-owned and managed lands until the Department of Forestry and Fire Management rescinds its decision.
Restrictions typically stay in place until Arizona moves into its monsoon season. During that time, higher humidity levels and increased moisture move in and help decrease the fire activity across the state.
While we never like to prohibit recreational activities, there is a time when it is necessary to protect our Arizona State lands, human life, property, and our natural resources.
One spark is all it takes to cause a devastating wildfire.
