Dead Horse Point State Park

Fire Ban In Effect


Due to extended drought and very high fire danger, a fire ban has been instituted at Dead Horse Point State Park and the surrounding areas of southeastern Utah.  Until further notice, the following conditions must be followed within the park to protect life and the condition of the park:

  • No campfires, wood or charcoal, anywhere; including designated campground fire pits.
    • Petroleum based stoves are permitted for the cooking of food.
  • No smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area that is paved, barren or cleared to mineral soil.
  • No metal cutting, welding or grinding activities in areas of dry vegetation. (always banned in DHPSP.)
  • No discharging or using any kind of fireworks, steel tipped/core ammunition, tracer ammunition or other pyrotechnic devices including exploding targets (always banned in DHPSP.)

This ban will be lifted when fuel conditions and fire danger allows.
