Camp fires temporarily prohibited in St. Charles County Parks

Beginning Friday, June 29, campers staying at the campgrounds at Klondike Park in Augusta and the Youth Group Camp Area at Indian Camp Creek Park, near Wentzville, are prohibited from having camp fires until further notice.

These fire restrictions are in place to ensure the safety of all park guests. Notifications have been posted throughout the parks.
Fireworks are also prohibited in all St. Charles County Parks underCountyOrdinance.
