Firewood can be purchased from the park operator in some parks or you can bring your own wood. Fees from firewood are set locally and may vary. 

To preserve vegetation and ground cover, please don’t gather firewood from the area around your campsite or elsewhere in the park. Dead wood is an important habitat element for many plants and animals and it adds organic matter to the soil.

You can conserve firewood and air quality by keeping your campfire small. Limited burning hours or campfire bans may be implemented and some parks may use ocmmunal fire rings. Be prepared to bring portable stove for cooking.

Picnic areas
Picnicking is permitted in unoccupied campsites as there is not a designated day-use area.
