Going camping? Choosing a campsite or campground?
Or picking a place to park your camper? Its the perfect vacation getaway. Pulling up to a beautiful campsite, enjoying nature, the woods or forest, in a state or national park. And you might be thinking about bringing firewood along from home. But dont! Bringing firewood from home to the place youre camping could put your favorite campsite or park in danger.
How far is too far to move firewood? And what do you mean by "local" firewood?
When we say local firewood, we are referring to the closest convenient source of wood that you can find. That might be from down the street, or a state forest in your county. As a very general rule of thumb, 50 miles is too far, and 10 miles or less is best. In many states there are rules, regulations, and quarantines that clearly state how far is too far. Some states have laws about crossing their state line with firewood, and the fines can be hefty.
Many folks will arrive after normal business hours, therefore if you show up and the office is closed proceed to the night registration box ( just to the left of the front door). If you have an existing RV or tent reservation your map ( with your name on it ) will be located at the night registration box. If you have an existing cabin reservation your map ( with your name on it and a key ) will be located at the night registration box. If you don't have a existing reservation, read the directions located at the night registration on how to find an available RV or tent sites in the campground. Cabins are not available after normal business hours. Call campground for normal business hours.
The Jumping pillow and Gemstone panning are seasonal activities and therefore will be in operation from March 15th thru December 1st.
