Portions of Shasta-Trinity National Forest to Re-open

shasta trinity forest service signPress release from Shasta-Trinity National Forest:

Portions of the Shasta-Trinity National Forest will re-open to the public beginning Saturday September 19 at 8 a.m. Dispersed camping and overnight use will be prohibited in portions of the Shasta McCloud Management Unit surrounding the towns of McCloud, Mt. Shasta, Weed, Dunsmuir and Castella until October 31, 2020.  Other areas of the forest are currently closed for public safety near the August Complex – North Zone Fire, the Red Salmon Complex Fire and the Fox Fire. All other areas of the forest, including the Shasta and Trinity Lake areas, are planning to resume normal fall operations.

The ban on campfires and all ignition sources remains in place. The use of any ignition source on National Forest System lands is strictly prohibited, including campfires, gas stoves, smoking and outdoor barbeque grills on houseboats. Continuing dry conditions and very limited firefighting resources require visitors to remain vigilant and be prepared to evacuate if a fire starts nearby. Although there has been some relief from the extreme fire behavior seen over the past several weeks, the forest remains in extreme drought conditions, and a single spark could potentially result in a large fire.

Please visit the Shasta-Trinity National Forest WebsiteFacebook and Twitter pages for further information. Forest Orders and maps will be posted at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/stnf/forestorders. For information about fires and fire closures, please go to InciWeb at https://inciweb.nwcg.gov.

    shasta trinity has a mostly no camping restriction on the opened portion and lassen NF you can only camp in a few of their campgrounds . and there is still a restriction on all flame using items . no gas anything and no smoking , not even in a trailer or truck anywhere in any open forest .
    check restaurant restrictions for the area your going to for hot meals

  • I’m pretty sure Six Rivers NF is still closed. Not a 100% positive though.
