FIRE BAN INFORMATION
Effective
Tuesday, May 27, 2014 through Thursday, August 28, 2014
Maricopa County's regional parks will initiate the annual fire ban. This includes banning the use of all
campfire, fire pits and charcoal grills; however, it is still acceptable to use gas/propane grills in designated areas such as the ramada areas, semi-developed and developed camping sites, and along the shoreline at Lake Pleasant Regional Park.
If the parks do not receive ample rain during the monsoon season, the Maricopa County Parks and Recreation Department
may extend the fire ban to protect the parks resources and ensure visitor safety. To learn more, click here.

  • Dam Tough - 8-miles

All proceeds benefit family programs in the park that are offered free to the public.

The early-bird registration fee of $20 is good through March 7, 2014. The fee for those registering between March 8 - 14, 2014 is $25.00. The vehicle entry fee is waived for pre-registered participants.

Registration on the day of the event is $30 plus park entry fee (no discounts). To register with a credit card, contact (928) 501-1710 (contact station). Downloadable registration forms are available below. Completed forms accepted by mail with a check or money order. The fee included access to the course(s), water and a tee-shirt.
