Permits are required to gather firewood. They can be purchased at the Superior Ranger District or any Forest Service Office. Personal use firewood permits are $20 per permit with a minimum of four cords and a maximum of 12 cords for $60, which is the maximum amount of firewood any one individual can buy per year.
