Forest Service lifts campfire restrictions in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness

In light of continued precipitation over most of the Superior National Forest, the Forest Service is lifting campfire restrictions in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW).

As of 7:00 am Wednesday, May 23, 2012, campfires will be allowed any time of day in all areas of the BWCAW. 

Forest visitors are urged to be careful with campfires.  Please use designated fire rings when available and make sure all fires are completely extinguished before leaving.
