Campfires Allowed In Most Campgrounds in the Forest

PORTERVILLE, California, October 7, 2016 – In response to the decreasing fire danger, the Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument announced today, a declaration to reduce fire restrictions, effective immediately.  Campfires and charcoal barbecues will once again be permitted inside most developed campgrounds and other designated areas.   

 “This is not an end to fire restrictions, we continue have concern about human caused wildfires,” stated Forest Supervisor Kevin Elliott.  “Please adhere to the regulations if you choose to have a campfire, make sure your campfire is kept small, confined to a cleared area, and extinguished completely before you leave.” 

 Visitors must have a valid California Campfire Permit in their possession for any type of fire use.  Permits are available free of charge at any Forest Service, Cal Fire or BLM office.  For a list of those areas that now allow campfires and charcoal barbecues, please stop by a Forest office.  This information can also be found on the Sequoia National Forest website



Tree Clearing Fest

Stewards of the Sequoia volunteers clear hundreds of downed trees each year to help the Sequoia Forest Service keep the Kern Plateau trails open. This Spring Stewards stepped up to clear almost 300 trees in order to get the trails open for motorized recreation.
