Eldorado Canyon State Park has implemented the Boulder County fire ban to “to reduce the danger of wildfires within those portions of the unincorporated areas of the county where the danger of forest or grass fires is found to be high, based on competent evidence.”
Prohibited activities include all outdoor burning, slash fires, use of any kind of fireworks, model rockets, and all other outdoor spark or flame producing activities.
The fire ban allows for liquid or gas fuel stove use, and smoking indoors or within an enclosed vehicle and smoking outdoors in areas free of flammable material.
The ban will stay in effect until lifted by Boulder County. A complete description of the Boulder County fire ban can be found at http://www.bouldercounty.org/find/library/government/fireban12032012.pdf
