    Default Are fires permitted in Lake Clark National Park

    I'll be backpacking in Lake Clark National park in 3 weeks, going from Turqouise Lake to Upper Twin.
    Curious if i'm allowed to have a small fire for heat/cooking? I'll be past the treeline most of the time so i'm not sure if i'll have wood available most times, but just want to know the policy.

    “Destroying vegetation. Cutting down live or standing trees for structures or firewood and removing tundra for tent pads is not allowed. Firewood must be dead and already down. Standing snags/dead trees provide critical wildlife habitat, especially for birds and insects, and should not be removed.”
