judgment when choosing to enjoy a campfire. The size of your campfire should be
proportionate to the weather conditions. Consideration should particularly be given to

including having a bucket or two of river water nearby if necessary.

Gather it from our land. There is often lots of dead wood on the
ground at the All American, The Pines and the Courtois Cabana. Guests are
welcome to gather any dead wood that is on the ground at ArdPark, except
for any cedar logs. If you think you might collect sizeable wood from the
ground, you may want to consider packing along a wheelbarrow or wagon. A
permit is required to gather firewood from national forest land so guests
should be sure they are removing wood from ArdPark property and not the
national forest unless they have a permit to do so.
