Starting today, campfire restrictions have been relaxed in Superior National Forest lands in St. Louis, Lake and Cook counties, U.S. Forest Service officials said. Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire or wood/charcoal burning stove anywhere on those lands is allowed only between the hours of 6 p.m. and midnight. This includes the entire Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
The only exception is fee-for-use campgrounds where a fire, campfire or wood/charcoal burning stove may be used at any time.
Gas and propane stoves are permitted anytime in all areas of the national forest. For additional information and updates, please see the Superior National Forest website: www.fs.usda.gov/superior.
