Attention all park-goers:

As of July 12, 2023, a Stage 2 Burn Ban is now in effect for Kitsap County, including all our parks and recreation areas. This decision has been made in response to an unusually dry spring, leading to fire conditions advancing faster than usual. Kitsap County Fire Marshal David Lynham has warned us about the heightened risk, with weather predictions indicating below-normal precipitation and above-average temperatures in the coming months.

During this Stage 2 Burn Ban, outdoor burning, including recreational fires, is strictly prohibited. We kindly ask everyone to avoid engaging in outdoor burning activities, such as beach bonfires, fires in improved fire pits, or any other forms of open burning in parks, campgrounds, backyards, or other public spaces.

Please be informed that all burning permits have been suspended, and any form of recreational burning, even in improved fire pits within Park District parks or campgrounds, is now prohibited. We understand the inconvenience this may cause, but the safety of our community and parks is of utmost importance.

Kitsap County is closely monitoring the weather conditions, but considering the current forecast, this burn ban is expected to remain in effect until the fall. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
