Campfires Banned in Some Jackson County Parks

Read original notice from Jackson County here
Effective August 2, 2022:

Due to the current drought and Extreme Fire Danger, CAMPFIRES are BANNED in the following Jackson County Parks: No campfires even in designated campfire areas. This includes charcoal fires, cooking fires, warming fires, candles, tiki torches and other devices that emit flames or embers.
*Portable cooking stoves using liquefied or bottle fuels and propane/liquid-fueled lanterns are allowed.
While enjoying the forests or outdoors here are ways you can help prevent fires:
  • Use a camp stove for cooking
  • Stay on the roads – heat from vehicles can easily start grass on fire
  • Don’t smoke – if you do, put the butts out and dispose of them properly
  • Don’t use anything with open flame or that could cause sparks
  • Check trailer chains to ensure they don’t drag along the road
