Listing of state forests and parks with burning restrictions

To help ensure public safety and protect natural resources, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is activating additional burning restrictions beginning 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, 2021 for the eastern portion of Roseau County and all of Beltrami, Cook, Koochiching, Lake, Lake of the Woods, and St. Louis counties, excluding tribal lands. Burning restrictions remain in effect for Cass, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Morrison, Todd, and Wadena counties.

The restrictions mean campfires are not allowed for dispersed campers at 40 state forests, and backcountry campfires are not allowed at 26 state parks and state recreation areas – even if the backcountry campsite has a fire ring. Camping stoves are permitted. Fireworks are not allowed in any state forest, state park or other DNR-managed lands.
