Fireworks Illegal in Lewis and Clark National Forests

Posted: Updated:

Thousands across the state and around the nation will be traveling for the 4th of July holiday. Camping is a popular activity for families during this time but forest officials remind residents that fireworks are prohibited on national forest lands.

Public Affairs Officer for the Lewis and Clark National Forest, Dave Cunningham  says virtually all campgrounds on the Lewis and Clark National Forest will be open on the 4th of July. Many fires are started in forest lands because of fire works. Despite a moderate fire danger, campers should also be vigilant and extinguish their campfires completely.

Unfortunately, every year people still bring fireworks on campgrounds. If they are caught, the fireworks can be confiscated and the owner can be cited. Keep in mind that if you are headed towards the Crystal Lake Campground this weekend, the road to the campground and trail head facilities in the Big Snowy Mountains will be closed for about three weeks for maintenance.
