A fire ban has been issued for Waterton Lakes National Park due to elevated fire danger. Lighting or maintaining fires in this area is now strictly prohibited.

This fire ban covers the entire national park including all front- and back-country campgrounds and day use areas in Waterton Lakes National Park. The ban includes the Waterton townsite.
This fire ban includes ALL open fires, EXCEPT, provided they are under direct supervision and certified by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriters Laboratories (UL):
• portable propane fire pits
• gas or propane stoves and barbeques designed for cooking or heating
• propane or gas fuelled lanterns (enclosed flame)
• patio heaters (propane, catalytic or infrared/radiant).
The fire ban restriction will be lifted as soon as conditions permit.
