Firewood

Help us protect your forests and parks by not transporting firewood. 

Please remember:

  • Massachusetts State Parks prohibits the transportation of firewood in to or out of its campground facilities. 
  • Arriving customers must get their firewood at the campground.
  • Pest-free and disease-free firewood is available at the contact station for $5 per bundle. Pricing may vary at parks with camp stores.

MassParks are at risk of severe damage from invasive species such as the Asian Longhorned Beetle and the Emerald Ash Borer. Invasive species have devastated forests in the US Midwest, and have recently been found in the Worcester, Boston, and Dalton Massachusetts areas. Once a forest is infested, eradication of an invasive pest involves devastating measures such as the removal of entire stands of trees or forested areas.
