Some Tenting Restrictions Lifted, Pickup After Your self


JAMESTOWN, ND ( — The weekend of July 4th is busy for outdoor enthusiasts.

The North Dakota Game & Fish Department is reminding citizens that some camping restrictions have been lifted for the holiday, but fireworks remain strictly prohibited.

Wildlife biologist Doug Leier says they’ve lifted some camping restrictions to allow for some overnight stays in wildlife sanctuaries that might otherwise have been prohibited.

A complete list of WMA regulations can be found on the Game and Fish website at

Lyre adds if you spend some time outdoors, keep it clean and unpack all your junk.

All waste, including used fireworks, should be disposed of in an appropriate waste container. If trash cans are unavailable or full, dispose of trash at home.

Tires, mattresses and kitchen appliances have found their way into public spaces. Cleaning up these illegal dumps is costly and has a significant impact on the environment. Not only does it spoil the beauty of the country, it destroys habitats, can pollute North Dakota’s waters and harm wildlife.
