Campfires Prohibited in most areas of the Okanogan-Wenatchee Forest

WENATCHEE — Increasing fire danger has prompted Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest officials to ban all campfires, including those in developed campgrounds and wilderness areas, in national forest lands in Chelan, Kittitas and Yakima Counties.

Campfires will still be allowed in designated campgrounds and wilderness areas within the Methow Valley and Tonasket Ranger Districts in Okanogan County.  In addition, campfires are also allowed in Brevicomis Tract summer homes within the Methow Valley Ranger District and summer homes under permit within the Tonasket Ranger District.  For a list of locations where campfires are allowed, please contact Methow Valley Ranger District at  509-996-4000 or Tonasket Ranger District at  509-486-2186.
