ALL Open Burning prohibited in all Lincoln County Parks
Lincoln County Parks Department is prohibiting all Open Burning in Lincoln County Parks and other properties owned and managed by the department. This is by order of the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board and Oregon Department of Forestry.
Beginning September 9, 2020, the fire ban applies to all propane powered devices, liquid fuel stoves or cooking devices, ALL BBQs, wood, charcoal, and other flame sources, (candles, tiki torches). This ban includes fires in campgrounds and on the beaches. Fire danger is at an extreme high. Lower than normal fuel moisture levels along with forecasted hotter/dryer weather compound the danger. Local fire agencies have limited resources to respond to a wildland fire.
Visitors planning a trip should check with park staff for the most current information.
