NID restricts campfires in campgrounds to reduce wildfire risk

(Grass Valley, CA June 16, 2021) Fire use restrictions will go into effect Thursday, June 17, at foothill recreational facilities owned and operated by the Nevada Irrigation District (NID). Due to the drought, hot weather and dry conditions, campfires will be prohibited in developed campgrounds around Scotts Flat Reservoir and Rollins Reservoir.

Under the rules, campfires and open fires fueled by wood or charcoal are prohibited. Portable cooking stoves and propane-fueled portable fire rings are permitted because fire levels can be monitored and maintained.

 

Scotts Flat, Orchard Springs and Long Ravine Campgrounds 

For summer reservations please contact the individual campground directly
