All gates on roads listed above will be closed and locked on September 1st, 2018, due to the start of bow season.

Firewood gatherers are asked to avoid harvesting wildlife trees such as those trees with visible nests, woodpecker holes, etc. Keep roads and ditches clear of brush and slash to assist in road maintenance.

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.
