Due to the state’s diverse landscape and weather, wildfires happen as a natural part of Montana’s ecology. Sometimes a fire occurs near a popular destination, but there’s no reason to let it stop you from enjoying your Montana experience.

“This summer, active fires are impacting less than 0.2% of the state—and often they’re in remote locations,” said Pam Haxby-Cote, Director of the Department of Commerce. “Montana’s two national parks, 54 state parks, and all of its vibrant and charming small towns are open for business and ready to serve travelers,” Haxby-Cote added.
