The Catoctin Mountain Park Firewood Permit Program, announced October 15, 2014, has been cancelled. A recently funded Hazardous Fuel Reduction Contract will engage contractors to reduce concentrations of hazardous fuel in specified areas, and eliminates the need for the previously announced collection policy.

Current firewood collection policy for camperswill remain in effect. The policy, defined by 36 CFR §2.1(4) can be found at https://www.nps.gov/cato/parkmgmt/upload/CATO-2014-Supt-Compendium-08-28-2014-FINAL.pdf.
