Permits are available by lottery to collect previously cut wood generated from hazard tree removals and wildland fuels reduction within Rocky Mountain National Park. Permits are limited to one cord on one day by a scheduled appointment. Over 100 permits are anticipated to be issued on the east side of the park throughout the 2017 season. A $20 non-refundable administrative fee will be charged for the permit. One day passage beyond the entrance stations is included in the permit fee for firewood gathering purposes only. Appointments for gathering will be scheduled throughout the year (no more than two weeks in advance) at times when roads, weather, park personnel and other park activities are available/favorable for gathering. Permit holders have no guarantee to the type, quality, or size of the wood.
The initial firewood collection site is near Moraine Park (four wheel drive not required). Most of the wood has not been cut into manageable lengths and will require a chainsaw. Trailers and vehicles with more than two axles will not be permitted.
