DENVER – Campers and visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park will once again be able to have controlled campfires after the park on Friday lifted the complete fire ban that had been in place since July 6.

That means that people will again be able to use designated campfire rings at picnic areas and campgrounds in the park, though other campfires and fireworks are still prohibited year-round at the park.

Visitors are also allowed to use portable charcoal grills, wood-fueled camp stoves and gas grills.

The fire ban that was in place for 13 days was the first the park had enacted since June 2012.

There are still fire restrictions in place across most of Colorado. Click here for an interactive map.
