Following the announcement of new tighter fire restrictions throughout the San Bernardino National Forest, the California State Parks has also tightened its restrictions on the local state areas.

At the Mt. San Jacinto State Park and Wilderness, the extreme fire danger caused by prolonged drought resulted in implementing new restrictions effective Tuesday, June 30.

These restrictions apply to Stone Creek and Idyllwild campgrounds.

  • Open fires, including campfires and barbecues, are prohibited. Portable propane or gas stoves are still permitted for cooking within designated campsites and day-use areas.
  • Fireworks are prohibited.
  • Smoking is permitted only in designated areas.

These restrictions are in conjunction with similar restrictions put in place by the U.S. Forest Service recently.
