Facilities Available at this Park
Firewood is not provided in this park by the Operator. However, you are more then welcome to bring your own firewood as long as it meets current campfire restrictions of 0.5 meter X 0.5 meter in size.
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. Bring a portable stove for cooking.
