As a result of increasing temperatures and dry vegetation, BLM and State Fire Managers have implemented Stage 1 Fire Restrictions across Southern Utah, which includes Dammeron Valley and the surrounding public lands.
While Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are in effect, the following acts are prohibited:
No campfires or open fires outside of agency improved and maintained campgrounds and home sites in southwest Utah. Running water is required on cabins or homesites on unincorporated private land. Devices fueled by liquid petroleum are allowed.
No discharging of fireworks or other pyrotechnic devices outside of incorporated city limits or on public lands (city-specific restrictions may apply). Fireworks are always prohibited on all Federal lands.
No shooting of exploding targets or tracer ammunition.
No cutting, grinding, or welding of metal in areas of dry vegetation. This includes acetylene torches.
No use of equipment without a working and properly maintained spark arrestor (if required).
No smoking near vegetation or outside of a developed recreation site, personal vehicle, or building.
No open fires of any kind are allowed in Zion National Park.
Campfires are allowed in agency improved and maintained campgrounds at Lava Point.
Campfires are allowed at Glen Canyon in established campgrounds within established rings and below the high-water mark, only in areas completely void of vegetation.
Please remember that fireworks are never permitted in Dammeron Valley or on the surrounding state and federal public lands. Visit Utah Fire Sense for more information and tips on how keep your family and property safe during wildfire season.
