Fire Bans & Danger


Information on fire restrictions and bans can change rapidly.  The most current information can and should be obtained from your local county or the forest service.  Contacts for each county can be found on the Local Info Sources tab.   This site is meant  to provide the Colorado community with a connection to their local agencies.

If you are visiting a Colorado State Park the fire restrictions will typically mirror those enacted by the county that the park falls within.  A list of those restrictions is below.
