The following is a press release from the USFS:
As you enjoy the last holiday weekend of the summer season on the Flathead National Forest (FNF), please keep in mind that fire danger remains “high.” Despite recent rain in some parts of the FNF everyone is asked to be diligent with campfires and ensure they are dead-out before leaving them.
FNF Supervisor Chip Weber says “Fire-fighting resources are very tight right now because of all of the fires burning around the region. As warmer weather returns this weekend with the possibility of additional lightning we all need to be extremely careful with all ignition sources.” This includes, but is not limited to, carefully monitoring any cooking activities, not tossing cigarettes on the ground and making sure vehicles and trailers are not dragging anything that could create sparks.
All campgrounds and developed recreation areas are open this weekend. There are several concession-operated campgrounds in which reservations are required for some sites, and other sites are first-come first-serve. Campers are reminded that at a fee campsite the site must be occupied on a daily basis. Saving campsites is not permitted at a fee campground. Campground information, including a list of developed campgrounds on the Flathead National Forest, is available at http://www.fs.usda.gov/flathead.
