by Dave on July 7, 2010

Officials with DNREC’s Division of Parks and Recreation have issued a ban on campfires in certain of Delaware’s state parks due to high temperatures and dry conditions.

As of July 7, campfires are banned in Lums Pond State Park, Killens Pond State Park, Trap Pond State Park and Cape Henlopen State Park.

The ban is to ensure the safety of campers and to protect the parks’ forested areas. Campers will still be able to use charcoal to cook their meals while the ban is in effect.

The ban is in place until further notice.
