Stanislaus National Forest Closed!

Updated Sept. 7 2020: As of 5 p.m. today, the Stanislaus National Forest is closed to all public access. This includes developed campgrounds, dispersed camping, day use areas, wilderness areas and all forest trails.  Fire restrictions have been elevated to prohibiting all ingnition sources, including propane or gel-fuel stoves.  The forest asks all visitors to depart the Stanislaus NF by 5 p.m. today.

Most of California remains under the threat of unprecedented and dangerous fire conditions with a combination of extreme heat, significant wind events, dry conditions, and firefighting resources that are stretched to the limit. Due to these conditions, the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region is announcing the temporary closure and increased fire restrictions to provide for public safety and reduce the potential for human caused fire starts.
