Firebans at LAKEVIEW CAMPGROUND

Postby laraburch21 » Mon Jul 01, 2013 11:51 am

I am hearing some conflicting information regarding the fire bans around Lake County. I have seen a posting at Stage 1 and another at Stage 2, does anyone know what it really is or where I can get a confirmed answer?

I have a group of us that are staying there to get some hikes in on the 4th-7th.

Thank you!

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

Thanks Presto!
All but the first website was correct. I called the Fire Rescue and they confirmed they are not selling burn permits. :shock:
