FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 26, 2015 - Thursday, September 3, 2015 (Tentative)
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

Hunting is permitted at some parks during specified hunting seasons regulated by the Arizona Game and Fish department. Please contact the park office before you hunt at any Maricopa County park. A valid hunting license is required and may be obtained at most sporting goods stores or by contacting the Arizona Game and Fish department.
