On September 11, 2014 the State of Arkansas Forestry Commission has issued a 120 day emergency statewide quarantine on firewood, which means nothing comes into the state and nothing leaves the state.
Due to the Emerald Ash Borer being found in several counties, the state of Arkansas has taken this measure to lessen the possibility of this infestation from invading Arkansas forests. This means the transporting of out-of-state wood into the state of Arkansas is prohibited.
Campers coming to Hot Springs National Park KOA Campground need to leave any firewood at home. We will have firewood available for sale in our KOA Store!
