Yellowstone fire danger level now at moderate

We’re looking at the start of a hot, dry summer, so its no surprise that the Yellowstone fire danger level is now estimated to be at a moderate level by the National Park Service.

There’s little rain in the 10-day forecast until June 22nd, and the National Weather Service is warming about unseasonably hot temps into the 90s. advising folks to avoid outdoor activity in the afternoon and evening. So these warm and dry conditions are pushing up the Yellowstone fire danger levels for now.

And, for now, there are no fire restrictions in Yellowstone. However, it’s best to keep in mind campfires are only permitted within established fire rings in campgrounds and some backcountry campsites. Campfires must always be attended and be cold to the touch before abandoning.
