Fire Safety

Arizona State Parks and Trails follow U.S. Forest Service and Arizona State Department of Forestry and Fire Management restrictions. However, additional restrictions may apply in state park campgrounds.

There's an App for That!

The Department of Forestry and Fire Management has up to date information on their website, as well as a mobile app to track wildfires near you. Get updates, notifications, and learn about planned prescribed burns. The free mobile application can be found for iOS users on iTunes and Google Play for Android users by searching the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management. Download it for iOS or Android.
