ADA & Mobility

Kelly Bells, a longtime Lakes of Fire participant, is our Mobility Liaison. Kelly herself has mobility challenges, and wants to help folks with mobility difficulties have a more inclusive, less reclusive experience at the Lake.  We look forward to her voice, experience, and participation in shaping our burn.

Have questions about mobility and ADA support at Lakes of Fire?  Contact us at mobility@lakesoffire.org.




We are proud that Lakes of Fire is a relatively accessible burn and are focused on improving the experience for participants with mobility challenges.  We intend to address:

  • Expanded shuttles with later hours
  • A list of volunteer opportunities for participants with mobility issues
  • Increased awareness for the community to engage and support
  • Increased access to large port-o-potties
  • Assistance with set-up and tear down

We ask burners to self-identify and contact us for mobility assistance once they have their ticket. A volunteer team will be available to assist them. If you have mobility issues for any reason whatsoever, we’re looking to help you.  If you want to help your fellow community members, we invite you to volunteer with us.  We’d love to welcome you aboard!



To promote inclusivity and access for all, Lakes of Fire permits animals qualifying as “Service Animals” as defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) to accompany a person with a disability.

All other animals, including pets and emotional support animals, are prohibited and will be turned away at the Gate without admission.

If a participant wishes to bring a qualifying ADA Service Animal to Lakes of Fire, we ask that you contact ADAanimals@lakesoffire.org to pre-register your animal so that we can best accommodate your circumstances and simplify the entry process.

We urge you to pre-register your animal to ensure timely Gate approval.
