Campfires are allowed again in established fire rings in campgrounds and day-use areas and on lake shores below the high water mark throughout Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area, the National Park Service said Tuesday. Charcoal grills are also allowed.

It is also illegal to burn chemically treated wood, painted wood, wood with staples, as well as household garbage including plastic and cans.
