Gathering Fire Wood

To burn a successful fire, you’ll need three types fuel: tinder, kindling and firewood.
•Tinder includes small twigs, dry leaves, needles or forest duff.
•Kindling consists of small sticks, typically less than one inch around.
•Firewood is any larger piece of wood and is what will keep your fire going long into the night.
Campgrounds: Use only local firewood. Nearby stores often carry firewood, and sometimes campground hosts offer bundles of firewood or kindling for sale.
Do not bring wood with you if you’re traveling from more than 50 miles away. Campgrounds may even ban bring-your-own firewood regardless of the distance you travel. Why? To avoid introducing troublesome insects into a forest. Call the campground or a local ranger office in advance for information and advice.
