Special Announcements

Wildfire preparedness

This season has been an especially dry season for Arizona. WE are blessed with an abundance of beautiful mountains, canyons, river and forests that are open to our recreation and it will take all of us being firewise to keep them beautiful. This season please be conscious of your fires as you camp. make sure that all vegetation is cleared from within 20' of any campfire as well as a protective rim of rocks surround the fire. Never leave a fire unattended even if it is not active burning. Embers can smolder an burn for up to several days under the right conditions. Smother your fires with water and dirt before going to sleep and especially before leaving your campground. Together we can all keep our natural resources safe and ready for generations to enjoy.

Feel free to check for more tips and to stay current on wildfires that are burning in your local area and throughout the US
