Firewood Collection Permits Available

Yellowstone National Park will be accepting applications for firewood collection permits March 25-27.

Excess firewood is periodically available in the park for a variety of reasons, including wildland fire fuel mitigation, wind events, construction projects, or hazard tree removal.  

Individuals interested in applying for a permit are asked to phone the Visitor Services Office at (307) 344-2116 to leave their name and daytime telephone number. Permits will be issued in the order phone calls are received. Successful applicants will be contacted as wood becomes available throughout the year.

Firewood permits cost $25 and allow up to three cords of wood to be taken, although there is no guarantee that three cords will be available for each permittee. Specific site guidelines and regulations, including hours and dates of collection, will be explained at the time the permit is issued.

For further information contact the Visitor Services Office at (307) 344-2107.
