Much of the Lava Beds National Monument Remains Closed Due to Encroaching Antelope Fire

Another outdoor destination in Northern California has closed with the Antelope Fire escaping containment lines and moving into the western boundary of Lava Beds National Monument. Today, most of the park remains closed.

“At this moment, the road from the main park entrance station at Gillem’s Bluff trailhead parking area to Captain Jacks Stronghold and Hill Road remains OPEN. Petroglyph Point is also open. All other areas and routes remain closed until further notice,” said Lava Beds officials in a statement.

The park closed in 2020 due to the Caldwell Fire, which burned much of the outer portions of the park. Now, with the Antelope Fire moving closer, it could be possible that more of the area will burn.

The Antelope Fire was first discovered on Sunday, August 1, 2021, in the Antelope Creek drainage on the Goosenest Ranger District of the Klamath National Forest. The Antelope Fire was one of several lightning-caused fires that occurred as a result of thunderstorms passing through the area. It currently sits at 145,025 acres with 63 percent containment.
