Good news for hunters - Fire restrictions have been lifted in Grand Teton National Park and on the Bridger-Teton National Forest thanks to the moisture we recieved over the past week. In Grand Teton National Park, wood and charcoal fires will be allowed at park campgrounds and picnic areas in established fire pits or fire grates. Backcountry fires are allowed only in established fire rings at lakeshore campsites and must be attended at all times. Permits are required to camp in any of the park's backcountry sites. The Bridger-Teton National Forest also allows wood and charcoal campfires in the backcountry in established fire rings. Permits are not required for non-commercial, backcountry national forest users.
