New September 11, 2017

Finally We get some RAIN... but yes, there is still a burn ban at Cowboy Campsite.

However, we have decided that we can relax our additional restrictions and revert to adhering to the DNR guidelines as we usually do during dry times. This decision is due to the unexpected quantity of much needed refreshing rain, the cooler temperatures, and the beginnings of heavy autumnal dew.

So, to be clear... no wood or charcoal burning until further notice. Propane devices can be used (including fire pits, burners and lanterns, etc) but we ask that you do not walk away from them while they are lit. We also ask that you have at least 5 gallons of water handy at all times as you would with any regular fire. Thank you all for being vigilant in taking care at camp!

STILL IN EFFECT: September 7, 2017

The Commissioner of Public Lands, Hilary Franz declared all outdoor burning, including campfires in fire pits and the use of charcoal briquettes, is banned on all forest lands within the State of Washington under Department of Natural Resources fire protection through September 30, 2017, with the following exceptions:

  • 1. As approved in writing by the Commissioner of Public Lands or Department Supervisor, approved prescribed fire for ecological purposes, when conducted by trained professionals.
  • 2. As approved in writing by the Commissioner of Public Lands or Department Supervisor when there are compelling reasons for such an exception.

Effective September 6, 2017, this order takes precedence over and supersedes all other burn bans currently in effect on forest lands within the state of Washington under DNR fire protection. This ban includes all State Park campgrounds. Contact your local fire district or County Fire Marshals' office to obtain exceptions on improved property under jurisdiction.

Cowboy Campsite Board of Directors is also clarifying this to specifically state that all flame devices including Propane Fire Pits, Propane Grills and BBQs, Propane Burners and Griddles, as well as Tiki Torches, Candles, etc. are included in this restriction during this extreme danger ban.

This ban will remain in effect until both DNR and CCMA BOD has removed the restriction.

Cowboy Campsite is NOT a hosted or staffed campground.

Cowboy Campsite properties border DNR lands and are subject by law to DNR fire ban restrictions. The CCMA Board reserves the right to impose restrictions above those set by DNR.
