– In support of ongoing Badger Creek Fire operations on the Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming, the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland has signed an area closure for a portion of National Forest System lands in northern Larimer County, commonly known as the “Old Roach” area.

Although there are currently no fire restrictions in Larimer County, it is crucial forest visitors are always careful with fire. Be sure to have plenty of water to put your campfire out cold to the touch before leaving it unattended.
