Updated Campfire/Firewood Policy

CAMPFIRES / FIREWOOD: Campfires may be built in any established fire ring or fireplace. Do not move fire rings or build new ones without permission of Campmaster or Camp Ranger. Do not bring in outside firewood. Firewood is provided at the lodges and is to be used in lodge woodstoves only. All units reserving cabins are required to leave a $50 firewood deposit check or cash ONLY per building rented with the Campmaster or Camp Ranger. Deposits will be returned upon check-out after verification that an equal amount of firewood used by the group during the weekend has been replenished. There is an ample supply of firewood in the surrounding woods. Any fallen timber may be cut up and utilized as needed. Any group that cuts down or damages live or standing timber will be held financially responsible. There is also a supply of wood available to refill the firewood boxes through coordination with the Camp Ranger. The use of chainsaws is restricted to operators who are at least 18 years old and have successfully completed the BSA Chainsaw Safety Training Class and are pre-approved by the Camp Ranger. Please observe fire safety rules at all times – never leave fires unattended. Certain weather conditions (high winds or drought) may prohibit or limit fires in camp; you will be notified by the Campmaster or Camp Ranger if such conditions exist.
