The Coconino National Forest Expands Year Round Camping/Campfire Ban

The Coconino National Forest is expanding the boundaries of the existing year-round camping and campfire ban adjacent to the City of Flagstaff in an attempt to lower the hazard from human-caused wildfires. Deputy Ranger Nick Mustoe says the public had a big say on the changes. He says, “the response from the public has been overwhelmingly positive. People understand that we have reached a point where this expansion just makes sense.” In addition to expanding the boundaries of the year-round camping and campfire ban, forest officials are continuing to implement other wildfire mitigation strategies, such as fire restrictions when conditions warrant, as well as mechanical and prescribed fire treatments in areas adjacent to communities.
