Attention Campers: Due to unprecedented fire danger in California, numerous uncontrolled wildfires burning in the State, and for consistency with similar Public and Private fire restrictions and land closures, PG&E has implemented a seasonal campfire and charcoal fire restriction within its manned and unmanned recreation facilities still in operation as of 9/7/2021. This ban is effective immediately and will be in place for the reminder of the 2021 season. Use of liquified or compressed gas appliances with shut-off valves such as camp stoves, gas grills, and lanterns as allowed appropriate. Many of the national forests in California have also implemented addition restrictions.  Please check online if addition restrictions are in place.
