If you plan on camping this weekend with family and friends, the Bureau of Land Management wants to remind everyone of a few rules.
Because of extremely dry conditions, NO campfires are allowed, except in permitted areas. Also, smoking is only allowed in enclosed vehicles, developed campgrounds and picnic areas. Finally, no off-road vehicles, except on gravel or dirt roads.
BLM Officials say compliance with these restrictions is vital, given the hot temperatures and dry brush we're facing this summer.
