The department had prohibited open fires, including campfires, on state property south of Bismarck and Mandan along both sides of the Missouri River.
Officials say any burn restrictions implemented by Morton and Burleigh counties will still be enforced.
The protected Oahe area covers more than 16,000 acres along Lake Oahe, in portions of Burleigh, Emmons and Morton counties.
