Fire Ban August 16 – 28, 2017
Due to EXTREME fire danger and limited emergency resources, all open flames are banned at The Cove Palisades State Park before, during and after the Total Eclipse.
ONLY PROPANE STOVES OR GRILLS (with lid) will be allowed; no wood or charcoal fires, propane fire rings, tiki torches, regular or Citronella candles or other flammable fuels will be allowed. Sky lanterns are illegal in the State of Oregon. No smoking is allowed in the park except in your campsite or vehicle.
If you plan on camping for the Total Eclipse weekend, please come prepared with alternative cooking methods. Ice may also be in very short supply and temperatures are expected to be hot. Plan for your family and don’t forget your furry friends.
Please do your part to keep The Cove Palisades State Park safe and beautiful!
