Because some folks may be considering camping, I want to let people know the following rules:

Stage II fire restrictions will be in effect beginning June 22 that prohibit the following:

  1. Fires, campfires, charcoal, coal, and wood stoves. (except using a device that is solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off in areas that are barren or cleared of all overhead and surrounding flammable materials within three feet of the device).
  2. Smoking (except within an enclosed vehicle or building).

…..9. Possessing or using a motor vehicle off National Forest System roads (except when parking in an area devoid of vegetation within 10 feet of the roadway or when parking overnight in Forest Service developed campgrounds and trailheads).

This means that all vehicles must remain on an open Forest Road when driving. All parked vehicles must remain within 10 feet of a Forest Road AND only in an area that is devoid of vegetation. This is to keep catalytic converters and other sources of heat underneath the vehicle from igniting vegetation.

Visitors may NOT drive over areas of vegetation to place their trailers or unload their tents and camping supplies, and may NOT park directly on a designated Forest Road. Thus, finding a suitable location for pulling a trailer off the road will be challenging, particularly with the number of visitors expected during summer months. As a result, some campers may not find a spot to camp on the Coconino National Forest at this time and during the busy weekends.

An explanation of the different stages of fire restrictions and what is typically prohibited during those stages can be found online at www.tinyurl.com/firestagesexplained. The public should be aware that state-managed and state-owned lands in Coconino County, south of the Colorado River, will also go into Stage II fire restrictions at the same time.

Some folks have asked me where one can camp; there are campgrounds listed on this link:

Camping, RVs, etc.

I have also noticed there is a turnoff to the right just past mile marker 220 on Ft Valley Rd (2.5 miles north of the Folk Festival) that I believe is in the National Forest, at the Ft Valley trail head. No facilities, water or campfires.

It takes months of work to put on this festival, but to be totally honest, the Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music would not be able to put it on without the support of  our volunteers, and Granting Organizations!  A big shoutout to all of you, and you can click on the links below for more info:
