As of Wednesday, August 19, 2020: STAGE 3 Fire Restrictions in place for the U.S. Forest Closure Area. All non-essential personnel are prohibited from entering, being upon, or using the lands within this area.
Fire restrictions can originate from many places. Federal agencies such as the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the National Park Service can impose restrictions on the public land they manage. Individual states can impose restrictions on state-managed land. Counties may impose bans on private lands within county borders. Confusion can result from the multiple agency jurisdictions, especially when adjacent lands have different restrictions depending on the administering agency.
