New Firewood Policy – Effective June 1, 2016 - DON’T MOVE FIREWOOD

In order to protect our forests and trees from invasive insects and diseases, Tennessee State Parks asks that ALL campfires be made with heat-treated wood or downed wood collected inside the park, near the campsite. Please refrain from bringing untreated wood into the park.

Certified heat-treated wood is available to purchase from concessioners in many of the campgrounds as well as from vendors in the communities around the park. Certified heat-treated firewood is clearly marked with a state or federal seal.

The Emerald Ash Borer and other invasive pests are a growing threat to the forests of Tennessee and the surrounding region. To learn more about the pests that threaten Tennessee and what you can do to help prevent the introduction and spread of invasive pests, visit
