18 National Parks in California Currently Closed Due to Wildfires.

As of September 9, 2020 at 5:00 PM, the U.S. National Forest Service has temporary closed eighteen national parks in California due to “unprecedented and historic fire conditions throughout California,” the agency stated on a press release, promising to continuously reevaluate conditions daily.

Among other popular parks, the following places are closed: Klamath National Forest, Lassen National Forest, Shasta-Trinity National Forest, El Dorado National Forest, Mendocino National Forest, Modoc National Forest, Plumas National Forest and Lake Tahoe National Forest.

The Forest Service thanks the public for their understanding of this monumental fire threat. It is critical for the public to respect these restrictions for their own sake and for the sake of firefighters and other first responders working 24/7 to save lives.
