Wildfire Prevention and Safety

Visitors should be aware of the potential for wildfires during this time of year. Many public land agencies may implement fire restrictions to proactively mitigate wildfire risk. The Wyoming Office of Tourism encourages you to check with local state and federal land management agencies while you're out adventuring to be up to date on the latest advisories. 

Keep these tips in mind before you leave home as well as on the trail to make for an enjoyable outdoor experience during fire season!

  • Before going hiking or camping, check with public land management agencies for fire restrictions or area closures.
  • Plan ahead and prepare—know your route, sign in at the trailhead, let someone else know where you are going and be sure to know how to get out!
  • Consider alternatives to campfires during periods of high fire danger.
  • Be aware of sudden changes in the weather or changing weather conditions.
