All State forests on the South Coast of NSW are now closed to the public until further notice due to the ongoing fire risk.
The exceptions are Bodalla Rest Area (in Bodalla State Forest) and Scrubby Creek rest area (in East Boyd State Forest), which remain open.
People are asked to stay out of all closed forests for their safety.
Forestry Corporation of NSW's Forest Stewardship senior manager Kathy Lyons said that state forests affected by current fires could remain closed for extended periods.
"There are many large dangerous fires moving across the landscape and we expect the high fire danger to continue for the foreseeable future," Ms Lyons said.
"State forests that have been recently burnt will remain closed for some time due to the high risk of trees falling after fire.
"There is a very high risk to public safety, so do not enter these forests until further notice."
Ms Lyons said the landscape was incredibly dry and there were already extensive fires, so conditions could change rapidly.
"There remains a continued heightened fire risk until we have substantial rain," she said.
"We encourage anyone planning to visit a state forest to change their plans, check current fire danger and fire bans via the Rural Fire Service website and keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for information about closures."
Ms Lyons said Solid Fuel Fire Bans have been in place since September 1, and prohibited campfires and barbecues using wood, charcoal or other solid fuels.
She said this ban will continue to apply every day.
"Campers are permitted to use gas stoves for cooking unless a total fire ban is declared," she said.
