New Regulations for Firewood

We have firewood available for purchase at our Camp Store. Campers are no longer allowed to bring their own firewood due to regulations from the NC Department of Agriculture and The Blue Ridge Parkway. To preserve the beauty of our wooded Camp, please do not cut down or damage trees in any way.

North Carolina prohibits the interstate and intrastate (within state) movement of firewood (hardwood, softwood, seasoned and green) from federal and state quarantined areas to prevent the spread of invasive forest pest species. Pests targeted in North Carolina’s quarantined areas include – but are not limited to – European gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar), emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis), walnut twig beetle (Pityophthorus juglandis), and the red imported fire ant (Solenopsis invicta). Firewood cannot be brought from a quarantined county into an unquarantined county within the state of North Carolina. The Blue Ridge Parkway requires firewood to be bundled and certified. All these measures are designed to prevent the introduction and/or spread of invasive forest pest species within North Carolina and neighboring states.
