Don't Start a Wildfire!


Due to the extremely dry winter, fire restrictions are in effect on many of the Indian reservations and public lands in Arizona, including Grand Canyon National Park and Tusayan District of the Kaibab National Forest south of the park. This generally means that campfires are banned except in designated campgrounds, and smoking is prohibited except in buildings and vehicles. Campfires are banned in the park backcountry all year. If the fire danger becomes extreme, as it likely will, the national forests will be closed to all access. For current information on fire restrictions and closures, visit
