Essential Information During Wildfire Season
Where Are Campfires Allowed Right Now?

Summer’s in full swing, which means that while we all enjoy the variety of outdoor recreational activities here in Lewis County, we all need to be mindful of fire danger.

With that in mind, we wanted to pass along information on burn bans in lands throughout Lewis County, including places you might want to camp or stay overnight. From state parks to our national forests and unincorporated county lands, here’s the skinny on what burning is and isn’t allowed.

We’ll update this if anything changes. These are current as of September 1.


UNINCORPORATED LEWIS COUNTY
As of September 24, burn restrictions in place for much of the summer are lifted.


WASHINGTON STATE PARKS
Up-to-date fire ban information can be found at this link. Fires are allowed in all designated fire pits as of Sept. 20.


WASHINGTON DEPT. OF NATURAL RESOURCES LANDS
No burn ban in effect as of Tuesday, Sept. 20. All approved outdoor burning is allowed.


GIFFORD PINCHOT & MT BAKER-SNOQUALMIE FORESTS
No known restrictions for the entire forest, but check the rules of the campground you’re staying at.
